It's time for the annual dineL.A. Restaurant Week
, which means it's a great time to dine out in Manhattan Beach. This year's restaurant festival is featuring seven Manhattan Beach eateries.
During Restaurant Week, restaurants offer special prix-fixe menus for dinner and/or lunch. While the regular menu is also available, the special Restaurant Week menus often feature new or unique dishes, perfect for tasting something new. No special tickets are required but advance reservations are strongly recommended.
