Fishing with Dynamite

We’ve survived the heatwave. We’re well-past scouring the city for AC and weekend beach days are over, for now. But a sublime raw bar is still worth traveling for, as are sweet Peruvian Scallops served over ice in their open purple shells.

David LeFevre, former Executive Chef of Water Grill in DTLA, opened his first Manhattan Beach restaurant, MB Post, back in 2011. He then debuted Fishing with Dynamite in early 2013 – a cosy, 35-seat, Hamptons-style seafood spot right across the street. They’re complimentary and convenient –  two neighboring restaurants that have made LeFevre, in many ways, a culinary pioneer of the South Bay.

It’s a romantic idea… A spur-of-the-moment trek to the coast on a Saturday evening. The highways are empty, the air is warm, the oysters are light and the cocktails refreshing. Sunbathing season is over, but a post-dinner walk down to the beach doesn’t sound so bad, nor does a big cosy sweater… what better way to conceal a bottle of wine in the evening?
