Once upon a time in a little kingdom in Madison, Wisconsin, there stood a boy who loved to watch his mother cook. That love transcended everything else and strengthened his desire to learn to cook. As he grew older, the boy forgot that love and enrolled in college to study engineering. Then one day, he had enough. The boy left college and decided to enroll in the Culinary Institute of America to embrace that love of cooking his mother once instilled in him. And this is how it all began....
The little boy's name is David LeFevre. LeFevre had the opportunity to travel to France to learn from some of the best Michelin-starred chefs. From there, he returned to the United States and whilst in Los Angeles, became the Executive Chef of Water Grill in Downtown Los Angeles. The Water Grill was where he became a reputable chef, earning his first Michelin star. And it was then that he decided to start his solo career at Manhattan Beach Post.
Manhattan Beach Post (also known as MB Post) is a rustic, open, and captivating restaurant set in beautiful Manhattan Beach. It is a social house where people gather and socialize over delicious food prepared from Chef LeFevre. Plates are meant to be shared and through each delectable bite, you can taste the effort and love Chef LeFevre put into the dishes.
|ILLY COFFEE ($4.50): Regular or decaf. Good coffee. Unfortunately, the waiter was not attentive with refilling my coffee or providing enough sugar/cream.|
Overall, Manhattan Beach Post is a fantastic restaurant that lives up to the name: A Social House. The drinks are great and the food is fantastic. This is considerably one of my favorite restaurants in the South Bay, let alone, in Los Angeles. Whether you choose weekend brunch or weeknight dinner at MB Post, you can't go wrong with any of the dishes. On a side note: parking can be quite difficult. If you're lucky, you may be able to find street parking or valet if you come during dinner hours.
