Dizz's as Is Celebration Dinner
A week ago we had dinner on the patio and Gwen Stefani , her husband Gavin Rossdale, two darling boys and two nannies. Dinner at Dizz’s is always a delight.
Yesterday, last minute my daughter changed her mind about our plans to have her graduation dinner in our backyard. This was fueled by daughter’s worries that her father (my ex) doesn’t get along with anyone in my family, her circle of friends, and some of his own family as well. That’s another story…
So on the morning of the graduation I called Dizz’s and requested a reservation for seven, then in an hour for nine, then hours later for fourteen+ as the number fluxed with who could or could not attend.
The restaurant is now painted a steely grey with clean white trim and is the epitome of old Laguna Beach charm. The menu is cosmopolitan, perhaps a little French with osso bucco, veal picatta, and pasta dishes adding an Italian tone. Every table is unique with mix matched floral tablecloths. The waiters and waitresses are relaxed and sitting under the ficus trees with giant staghorn ferns one might just as well be in the Grandmother’s backyard in Nice (Le mélange a assorti les nappes et les arrangements d'endroit floraux que la Grand-mère pourrait éteindre un mercredi). I had to add just a little comment to give you the feeling of being in the South of France as opposed to South Orange County.
It all was a successful evening and daughter seemed happy to get those pretty envelopes with dough.
