Taverna Laguna Beach, an Italian restaurant in a historic building at 222 Ocean Ave., will offer regional Italian menus one week a month beginning Jan. 23-27.
The menu will focus on food from Sagra Del Maiale, known as the pig feast. Patrons in Taverna’s dining room or on its patio with historic tile murals can sample several specialties: a frisée salad with warm braised pork belly, sun-dried tomatoes and a poached egg; parmesan polenta with sausage; or pancetta-wrapped pork tenderloin over cannelloni beans and kale stew with Vincotto sauce.
Next month, Feb. 20-26, the menu will highlight Sagra del Carnevale, or carnival festival.
The menu can be paired with wine for an additional $18.
