Big and buzzing with excitement over Chef/co-owner David LeFevre’s creations, this is a fun and casual place that has something for everyone, just a stone’s throw from Manhattan Beach Pier. The food is a proud foray into just about every global cuisine—from pork chili chimichangas and bibimbap to Scotch eggs—but always with clear Californian flair. Their bacon-cheddar buttermilk biscuits are so good that they don’t even need the maple butter that accompanies them.
Everything revolves around gathering, conversing and sharing; portions are small so plan your ordering as a group to explore a majority of the menu. Weekends can veer towards loud and crowded with plenty of young families in tow, so this isn’t a place for anyone with a yen for calm.
