fishing with dynamite, manhattan beach.
fishing with dynamite is the cutest seafood restaurant - everything from the name to the artwork on the walls to the tile on the floor is simple, graphic and a little tongue-in-cheek. we visited on a sunday evening with a former colleague, which allowed us to order so much more food than we are usually able. clearly, we should eat out with friends more!
after the raw section, the menu is split into old school (clam chowder, crab cake) and new school (grilled octopus, ceviche) seafood items. we ordered several items from both and everything was excellent: super fresh, beautifully prepared and really, damn tasty.
my favorite bites of the night were the oysters (obviously), the koshihikari rice, and the salmon rillete (OMG, those gougeres). but i also have to give a special mention to the ceviche, crab cake and mussels - every bite was so, so good.
