The perks of living on Manhattan Beach are well documented. Beautiful sunlight, beautiful water, beautiful weather and beautiful Manhattan Beach hotels. We all know riding the waves or tanning on the beach are a couple of the must-do activities when out and about with friends, but what about in and around the gorgeous landscape? What else does Manhattan beach provide for its residents? Well, here are 3 things to keep you busy in between those beach getaways:
Named the best beach town in America for chowing down by GQ Magazine. Manhattan Beach culinary delights range from several "foodie magnets" with restaurants in town to exceptional local fares such as fish tacos and Mexican food. But the real draw about the food scene in Manhattan Beach is that the local restaurant scene is as close to the water as the beach is itself. You won't have to wander far from the surf to find your new favorite lunch haunt.
Whether you want to enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the many attractions that call Los Angeles home, you will likely want to start your day by eating a delicious breakfast.
Here are some of the popular eateries that Manhattan Beach, California has to offer:
Fishing with Dynamite restaurant in Manhattan Beach may be small in size, but it's big on taste. This very popular intimate eatery with a casually lively interior offers its guests table seating, a raw bar and a cocktail bar.
Fishing with Dynamite (FwD) is co-owned by its chef, David LeFevre, a Culinary Institute of America graduate who has worked at some of the top restaurants in America and France. Chef LeFevre spent two years on a culinary journey through Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia, Europe and the Caribbean exploring exotic new cuisines; after returning home, he earned a prestigious Michelin star. His culinary creations have received high critical acclaim as well as the honor of being a semifinalist in three categories for the James Beard Foundation Awards. Los Angeles Magazine even named FwD's raw bar Best Oyster Bar.
I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is always fresh and thoughtfully prepared. You can order fresh oyster platters that are so fresh and delicious and out of this world. My favorite dishes are of course any fresh seafood on the menu, the crab cakes and I really enjoy the char salad. delicious. We have also tried the chowder and the shrimp poboy which was fantastic. Small place and very popular, reservations recommended! Enjoy!
