out and about: mb post

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!

Word-Free Wednesday

Well, sorta word-free, if you don’t count the captions. I really, really haven’t had time to blog lately, as you can tell by the lack of posts in the last few months. So I guess I’ll sneak in a few photos from Hawaii that I never got around to sharing. At least they’re summer-y (and not dated) and feel appropriate for the time of year… lol. Till next time!

all smiles at Waiola's, the best shave ice ever! even Hawaii's finest say so.
