At Kah Asian Restaurant & Lounge, Chef Vit Suttichanond blends Thai, Japanese, and Chinese flavors into pan-regional cuisine that Easy Reader News has praised for its presentation and its approachable flavor combinations. Familiar Thai curries and noodle dishes fill most of the menu, although wok-fried orders of kung pao chicken and meaty fried rice lend distinctly Chinese touches as well. The sushi chefs also breathe new life into sushi-bar staples with inventive aesthetic details, such as the crimson slivers that explode from the center of the dynamite roll.
Sconce-lit walls and exposed ceiling beams surround the dining room's gleaming wooden tables. Separated by a line of high-backed booths, the lounge area's backlit bar brims with potent spirits and a collection of bottled sakes that diners can knock over in hopes of winning an enormous stuffed animal.
Manhattan Beach is known for its warm sunshine and welcoming waves, which surfers chase on the beaches of the historic El Porto district. It's the type of place that lends itself to relaxation and laid-back personalities. That's why Clint Clausen was surprised how hard it was to find his ideal dining trifecta: organic coffee, fresh cuisine, and friendly smiles. Most local cafes seemed to lack at least one of these key ingredients, so he started his own. Named after his four daughters, the restaurant teems with eats that are as comforting as they are healthy. Between cups of steaming Lamill coffee, guests can taste breakfast's sweet side with a stack of caramel-pecan pancakes or explore its savory flipside with a 4DK omelet stuffed with spinach, ham, and roasted mushrooms. At dinnertime, the kitchen bolsters the menu with draft beers, more than a dozen types of wine, and Angus rib-eyes as hearty as Paul Bunyan's handshake.
In order to reinvent the seafood-eatery formula of their oceanside neighborhood, a group of restaurateurs looked elsewhere, to what they name in their bio as the "only other coastal location in the U.S. that matches the allure of Manhattan Beach." As a result, The Hamptons' seafood-focused cuisine and oceanic decor stays true to its namesake. Executive chef David Linville crafts a menu of gourmet-inspired, yet casual dishes that range from tender crab cakes and seared scallops with risotto to fish tacos and lobster rolls. Inside the sea-foam-hued dining room, blue-glass floats suspended in fishing nets cast an underwater glow across rows of tables to the lobster traps above the bar. There, 14 types of craft beers rush from the taps, and red and white wines pour freely into glasses or the tackle boxes of fishermen angling for tuna sommeliers.

The chefs at Sesame Moe’s–formerly Open Sesame Grill–view cooking as an art that involves more than simply following recipes. To them, and to original owner and executive chef Moe Bonakdar, cooking is something that requires a soulful touch—something that gets passed through the generations. This dedication manifests itself in the restaurant’s dishes, which carry a Mediterranean tune. Exotic tastes and aromas follow every creation that leaves the Sesame Moe’s kitchen, including fried potatoes and sautéed cauliflower. There are also entrees such as tawook—tender chunks of chicken cooked over a low flame with fresh spices and herbs.
