David LeFevre’s large, loud, perpetually packed New American restaurant went a long way toward redefining the center of Manhattan Beach when it opened in 2011. Five years later, with two sister restaurants now open on the same strip, MB Post feels like it is the center of Manhattan Beach, its high ceiling and long, wooden communal tables serving as the new, youthful soul of this neighborhood. The menu is an international hodgepodge, with everything from charcuterie to kimchi fried rice to truffle-laced fried chicken. But whether it’s a cauldron of mussels swimming in a deep green curry with Chinese sausage and sticky coriander rice, or lettuce wraps filled with deeply caramelized pig jowl, or that kimchi fried rice topped with a runny egg and large hunks of Korean pear, everything LeFevre cooks here is done with an eye toward bold, balanced flavor. It’s a great place for a casual dinner with lots of wine, a great place to meet at the bar for a cocktail, a fun way to bookend a weekend beach day (brunch is killer, too) and a great symbol of what this neighborhood has become. —Besha Rodell
