Great Food at the Beach
Manhattan Beach has become a food hotspot, and the hottest spot is MB POST, David LeFevre’s raffish “social house” on Manhattan Avenue. Everything on the menu is worth trying here. Don’t miss the bacon cheddar buttermilk biscuits or the pretzel with horseradish mustard. The mac & cheese is stunning, the egg yolk ravioli is ethereal. Try the grilled peach and burrata salad. Seared diver scallops with white corn is masterful and the soft shell chili crabs with grilled watermelon are superb. The Vietnamese caramel pork jowl with green papaya salad is splendid as is the grilled skirt steak. Finish off with the buttermilk panna cotta with strawberries. You just can’t miss at MB POST. Service is charming and efficient and the wine list is loaded with discoveries. Prices are moderate and seating is at refectory tables. You’ll love it!
