The Manhattan Beach area is sunny, beautiful and fun all rolled into one but it's also home to some of the best cuisine Southern California has to offer. The local restaurants have an incredible variety of delicious food to entice and satisfy their visitors and even better, the following restaurants are all within minutes of the Sea View Inn and the beach!
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.
"Soulful", "highly personal" and "playful" are all words that have been used to describe the ambiance and food at Manhattan Beach Post Restaurant (also known as M.B. Post) located within a 1960's post office.
Chef and co-owner David LeFevre pulled together fifteen years of culinary experience here and abroad, at such renowned places as Charlie Trotters and Water Grill. For M.B. Post, Michelin-starred LeFevre has created a rustic menu, and offers small production wines and hand-crafted cocktails.
LeFevre refers to M.B. Post as a "Social House" where friends and family can "sample their way through the menu", sharing seasonal dishes that stand on their own merits. Both the cuisine and the atmosphere were created to be a reflection of the vibrant yet casual nature of South Bay itself. This unique concept allows guests to enjoy and explore a wider variety of tastes, textures and elements.

When it comes to Manhattan Beach, California, there are many things to do outside. But what about those hot days when the air conditioning is your new BFF? What is there to do then? May we suggest a visit to the Manhattan Beach Art Center? Located on its namesake boulevard, the center is all set to host a fantastic exhibit from Memorial Day Weekend until June 30, 2016.
It’s called, “Family Plot”, and with good reason. The Time 4 Art sponsored exhibit is more than just a mish-mosh collection of creative expression. It’s a calculated display of creativity that runs through the veins of a California family who is well-familiar with a paintbrush...the Moses-Berg Clan.
There's nothing better than a relaxing evening with good food, good company and a beautiful view. That's what you'll find at Rock'n Fish Restaurant in Manhattan Beach, located right at the foot of the Manhattan Beach Pier.
A favorite dining spot with the locals, Rock'n Fish has it all - fabulous food and generous helpings, a welcoming atmosphere and a focus on providing the best service possible. Whether you dine indoors or on the patio, you'll want to come back again and again. Owner Michael Zislis enjoys stopping by guests' tables to make sure everything has lived up to their expectations.
