My brother recently bought his first (way beyond starter) home in San Clemente, so I’ve been trekking down to South Orange County a lot more these days.  When he received the keys, we celebrated at Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in nearby Dana Point (you know, that place you go to to get to Catalina Island).  For starters, we ordered the canapé and shellfish tastings.  More pretty in presentation than anything particularly profound on the palate (#soboredwithfinedining), but worthy of white table cloth time for a celebratory meal.  Congrats bro, on the sweet, new pad!
