Bacon chedder buttermilk biscuits at MB Post

Just steps from the beach, brunching at Manhattan Beach Post (more affectionately known as MB Post) has become a South Bay right of passage. On weekend mornings, diners delve into ricotta-stuffed French toast and truffle honey-laced fried chicken; during the week, couples gaze at each other over family-style servings of squid ink tagliatelle and duck prosciutto. MB Post's biscuits are practically legend at this point: bacon cheddar buttermilk beauties, served with a side of maple butter. An extensive wine list, along with beer and handcrafted cocktails, ensures that this spot in the bubble is all you really need.

If you don’t think tapas will be filling – think again. I came here with a few of my girlfriends a few weeks ago for a post-birthday dinner. Everyone was so accommodating from the hostesses, to our servers, to the bar manager – everyone came to greet us and talk story and make sure we were having a good experience. Free birthday champagne as well, it just kept getting better.

The food here is delicious. I had the flat iron steak, ahi soba salad, pork belly w/ eggplant (so soft and moist), and their killer dessert called “the Elvis” which is a chocolate pudding with peanut butter mousse and bacon brittle. I eat a lot and even that became way too much food. It’s worth the trip out to MB! 


Do yourself a favor, book a table here for brunch, and just sit there eating Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits all day. The restaurant is cool and rustic - lots of wood but high ceilings and sunlight abound, but really, what REALLY matters here, are these beautiful biscuits. Feels kind of sacrilegious to recommend going to sunny, health-conscious LA for a staple of Southern cooking, but do it. 

Manhattan Beach is also generally just an awesome place to visit. The houses along the beach walk are beautiful and of course the beach itself is beautiful. There is also a really cute little (free) aquarium at the end of the pier.  

MB Post serves up bland food, drinks at rip-off prices (even for L.A.), and a crushingly loud environment .

There's a lot of hype surrounding MB Post, and it's all worth it. From their drink selection, brunch and dinner menu, there's a lot to enjoy here. Plus, the atmosphere of the restaurant is hip, which shouldn't be a surprise since it's located in Manhattan Beach. Kinda pricey, so be prepared to spend some cash.
