Yes, I’ve definitely been out and about; it’s been about eight shocking months since my last entry… gasp. I have a huge backlog of photos that need posting, and while I’m working on the fun ones, here are some I shot for Manhattan Beach Post (MB Post) before their launch last year. Chef David LeFevre, formerly of Water Grill, decided to break out on his own and open up a little gastropub closer to home.
With its cavernous loft-like space, reclaimed wood, and communal tables, the restaurant brings a bit of LA to Manhattan Beach, while combining sensibilities of both. The laid-back decor pays homage to its 60s post office origins and seaside location, but don’t let the casual vibe fool you — Chef LeFevre means business.
LeFevre’s global-inspired menu shows off his skill and experience gained from working in restaurants all around the world, and at his last post, Water Grill where he earned a Michelin star. And Chef David definitely has a great eye for plating, as all the food came out looking amazing for the camera. Gotta love that!
