American | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

Second visit to Manhattan House. We were particularly impressed by the vegetable sides. On our first visit, we had the grilled asparagus which was outstanding. On our latest visit we had the broccolini and brussel sprouts. Both were excellent. Our server was flexible enough to allow us to also order a few items from the happy hour menu, even though we were not seated in the bar area. I had the mushroom risotto as my entree on this visit. It was creamy and delicious. We look forward to our next visit to this neighborhood gem. More

Discover Beach Cities

The L.A. beach cities offer a variety of food options that appeal to diners who place a priority on fresh and local cuisine. Chefs prepare food with fish that has been caught within hours from the Pacific Ocean. Global seafood fans can order innovative sushi rolls and ultra-fresh sashimi, and families can try grilled fish served with a salad. Other food options are also available in different neighborhoods, so kids can get a traditional sandwich and healthy eaters can enjoy a properly seasoned turkey burger. Hearty meals can be ordered as well during lunch or dinner. Comfort food fans can try the meatloaf prepared with bold, spicy seasonings and covered with a fiery sauce. The dessert options pair nicely with Beach Cities meals because they're made with fresh ingredients like berries and mint.
