You'll be dining with your stilettos in the sand along the Nettle Bay lagoon at this casual-elegant French bistro that's been in business for 15 years. It’s a sexy spot to be, beneath rustling palms, with the lights twinkling on the blue-black lagoon—and no, you don't have to dine barefoot in the sand: La Cigale has plenty of tables above the beach. Set behind the Laguna Beach hotel, La Cigale serves a classic French cuisine that sometimes does a French Riviera side tour, such as seabass with tomatoes and an olive tapenade. Otherwise, this is impeccably prepared, upscale French fare, from the duck foie gras to the goat-cheese puff pastry to the sole meunière.
