Chef David Slay of SLAY

In the last 18 months, new and exciting restaurants have moved into all the different corners of Manhattan Beach. SLAY, by Chef David Slay, is a swanky steak and fish house where Darren’s used to be. Another North Manhattan fresh concept is M & Love cafe, a plant-based, gluten-free establishment across from Two Guns Espresso’s new location. The Source Cafe - a Hermosa Beach allergy-friendly earthy cafe - opened their second location complete with a full kitchen and organic beer and wine selections in Spring 2020 on Sepulveda across from Barsha. Paradise Bowls on Manhattan Ave is a go-to for locals seeking a fresh healthy acai bowl. They open early so you can start your day with a local’s favorite, the Gaucho Bowl.

North Manhattan on Highland Ave. is a local favorite and, as owner Steve Delk tells me, it’s the “Cheers at the Beach. When you walk in, you immediately feel at home. If you don’t know someone, you will before you leave.” Manhattan Beach has become a dining destination and a cuisine leader in the South Bay. Some of the best restaurants in LA call Manhattan Beach their home. Love & Salt is a California-inspired Italian restaurant that believes food only needs those two ingredients to be really great.
