If you had been to Chloe in Playa del Rey you know what I mean. Chloe was by far the BEST restaurant in Los Angeles. I was saddened by Chloe's closure and ventured to Avenue last night for the first time. My date and I were... (more)

My husband and I have enjoyed Avenue many times since they opened their doors. I agree that for the first couple of months they "packed the people in like sardines" but what new restaurant in Manhattan Beach doesn't.... (more)
