The popular downtown Manhattan Beach dining destination has remodeled and revamped its menu.

A new, re-imagined Darren's Restaurant reopens its doors for dining Friday night (July 11) after extensive interior and exterior renovations and a comprehensive revamping of the original menu. The popular eatery closed in late June for renovations.

The new, re-imagined Darren’s menu features a revamped menu that offers small and large plates; the remodeled interior features a centralized community table, a light and airy ambiance, and a striking floor-to-ceiling glass exterior.

The changes present diners with an experience that combines the best of California beach culture with the culinary masterpieces created by head chef and owner Darren Weiss. 

“After almost a year of overseeing the planning, design and preparing for the renovation, I couldn’t be more delighted to share this labor of love with familiar faces and first-time guests alike,” says owner Darren.

To celebrate the reopening, Darren’s will host a benefit dinner on July 29 at 7 p.m. for No Limits for Deaf Children, an organization that has dedicated itself to enriching the lives of children with hearing impairments through after-school programs and theater groups. A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit No Limits for Deaf Children. Tickets go on sale Monday, July 14. For more information about Darren’s reopening or the charity benefit dinner, call (310) 802-1973 or visit

Located in the heart of downtown Manhattan Beach, Darren's, which was voted #1 Best Overall and California Cuisine by Open Tables Diner’s Choice.has been a dining destination and local favorite since 2007. The globally influenced cuisine is a fusion of new American, Mediterranean, and Pacific Rim flavors.

Darren's is open Monday through Saturday beginning at 5 p.m, and closed on Sunday. The restaurant offers private dining options for weddings, receptions, cocktail-style events and intimate dinner parties.
