M.B. Post is a Manhattan Beach phenomenon: Within just months of its opening, it has become a critical favorite within the Los Angeles restaurant community as well as a wildly popular local destination. From its vaulted ceilings and wide glass-and-steel doors that let in the beach breezes, to the long communal tables that encourage sociability, M.B. Post offers a unique dining experience that somehow feels both luxurious and comfortable.
So what about the food? We had a chance to sample a multi-course feast at M.B. Post during the Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival, and it was absolutely out of this world. Our fave appetizer was a hamachi (yellowtail) sashimi with pickled ginger, shiso (an aromatic Japanese green), and yuzu koshu (pungent sauce made from the yuzu fruit). We also loved the melt-in-your-mouth wine-braised beef cheeks with Nantes carrots, salsify (a white root vegetable), and German butterball potato puree. And local farmers’ market devotees will appreciate the roasted vegetable melange with rutabaga, baby Brussels sprouts, empire apples, pine nuts, sage, duck confit, and bourbon maple syrup – featuring produce fresh from Weiser Family Farms.
