Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Manhattan Beach Post

8:41 AM PDT on September 6, 2018

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]he menus at Manhattan Beach Post often have margin notes and extra dishes handwritten underneath and around what’s already been printed. Roasted sunchokes, for instance, were scribbled in as the last entry in the “Eat Your Vegetables” section not too long ago, as if the kitchen just picked up a case from the farmers market and decided, way past the time the menus could be reprinted, to offer them that night anyway. These types of last minute additions give writers anxiety attacks, but it is exactly this casual informality that sums up David LeFevre’s restaurant, which opened in 2011 and has been a center of Manhattan Beach dining ever since. It’s a boisterous, easygoing place where you can share a good helping of those sunchokes alongside a charcuterie platter that may or may not include Tamworth prosciutto and local honey, plus perpetual crowd pleasers like charred Brussels sprouts, grilled skirt steaks, and lovely cheddar buttermilk biscuits studded with bacon. All of which is the perfect way to bookend a sunny Los Angeles day of building sandcastles and watching sunsets.
