Doma Kitchen

From the website:
"Doma Kitchen offers a globally inspired cuisine with an emphasis on European and Central Asian techniques. Owners Angie Corrente and Stan Mayzalis with Chef Kristina Miksyte have taken inspiration from their world travels and created a menu that reflects the exciting cuisine found throughout the globe.

All dishes are prepared from scratch and are seasoned to perfection with housemade spices, placing the highest importance on farmer’s market fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients. With their design background, Angie and Stan have created an environment unlike any other in the South Bay."

"The small Redondo Beach restaurant, by owners Angie Corrente and Stan Mayzalis and chef Kristina Miksyte, has found new digs in Manhattan Village. There they are serving traditional Turkish coffee; Uzbek plov in a pot with turmeric-scented rice, chicken and vegetables; and potato or chicken dumplings in a dill broth called pelmeni. But if you stop in on a Saturday and want a traditional brunch, you can order waffles topped with Nutella and strawberries."

Bacchus Wine

From the website:
"We are a family owned and operated neighborhood wine shop and tasting area that specializes in small production wines. This site is your source for information about our wines and what’s going on at our shop.

Our daily wine tasting menu (except Mondays) features five wines for $10.00. We change the menu every three days to keep it fun and interesting. If you like what you've tasted, you can buy a bottle at 10% off. We also have special winemaker tasting events at the store monthly. Check the website for details."

"A family-owned wine shop where you can buy a nice bottle of Champagne or pick up a $14 bottle of rosé. Unfamiliar with what to buy? This is not an intimidating place. In fact, the staff likes it when you need a recommendation. And if you're interested in learning more about wine or need a fun date-night activity, the store hosts tastings Sundays to Tuesdays for $10 a person."

The Arthur J

"It's an upscale steakhouse by LeFevre, with an ocean breeze. Translation: There are white tablecloths and $50 steaks on the menu, but the people sitting next to you are still in their flip-flops. The steaks are cooked to perfection on a J&R Wood Fire Char Broiler hardwood grill, and with a dirty martini in your hand, you'll feel like beach royalty."

Learn to Surf in Manhattan Beach!

Manhattan Beach offers several options for Surf Lessons and Camps in a variety of formats, as well as forgiving waves that are great for learning!

Summer is here! It's time to surf!

In the mid-90s, I had the honor of meeting Fay Baird Fraser, one of the first women to ever surf in California. She caught her first waves in 1926 at the age of 16 in San Diego. She was 86 when we were introduced at the Surf Museum in Oceanside, but chatting with her as we looked at the old redwood boards like the behemoths the surfers of her time rode, I could see the sparkle in her eye still shining bright. The "Stoke" was still there.
