Katsuya Laguna Beach Closes Tonight

A year and a half after opening its sole Orange County location, Katsuya By Starck decided to call it quits. At least, that's what our new chef friend told us. Just to be sure, we verified the intel Sunday evening.

Despite a trendy setting and über-expensive cocktails, our friends kept reminding us the menu exceeded its reputation. It was always on the back burner on our list of places to check out. Unfortunately, that day will never come.

Per the hostess, there will be a locals special of 50 percent off the dinner menu. If it were open for more than dinner, we'd certainly stop by.

What is it being replaced by? Nobody is confirming or denying our inquiries, but anything is possible. Just look at French 75.
