Selanne Steak Tavern steak house, owned by professional hockey player Teemu Selanne of the Anaheim Ducks, is now open in Laguna Beach. Located in a historic 1934 home on the Pacific Coast Highway site of the former French 75 eatery, the newly reinvented restaurant has a tavern-style bar and a patio. The venue has a residential style, with quartz mineral accents, framed butterflies, and an antique zinc horse head from mid-18th-century France. The building’s original brick fireplace and etched windows join more modern touches, like large abstract pieces by local artist Nick Gaetano, smoked glass mirrors, and bathrooms with fire-glazed patterned tile flooring and crystal chandeliers. The concept is a joint venture between Selanne and Orange County businessman Kevin Pratt.
