Make Mine a Pier-nini

Now, there's one more: Good coffee joined by good food.
Need a nibble or lunch? That's an option now, too.
Manhattan Beach Yacht Club, the whimsically named food stand in the Roundhouse, had already become a draw since the good folks at Two Guns Espresso took over the slot earlier this year.
New to the Yacht Club's offerings: Hot soup and grilled, pressed panini. Both lunch items debuted Saturday after Thanksgiving.
DigMB popped by for a quick taste test.
The butternut squash soup was thick and velvety, served in a bowl that, at first, seemed larger than our appetite. There was no problem at all finishing that delicious prelude.
Next came a grilled cheese panino with gruyere on sourdough. The attractive little sandwich was grilled perfectly crisp, with a satisfying snap to each bite and just enough character to that warm gruyere. Had we not already had a proper lunch, we would have been all over the more hearty panini – tomato and mozzarella with peppers, or ham and cheese.
And you don't have to wait for lunch. The MBYC bacon and egg breakfast panini will be a great option for a late-morning pick-me-up.
Will our daily breakfast burrito meet its match? Stay tuned...
