When I think of MB Post, I immediately think of their Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits. As soon as you sit down, do yourself a favor, and place an order for those biscuits. They are a great starter to any meal, and the bacon will help clear your head enough to navigate through their menu. Everything sounds and tastes delicious, which makes choosing one main dish so difficult. If you don’t mind sharing, I recommend ordering family style and sharing, so you can try more of Chef David LeFevre’s dishes.
On my last trip, my best friend and I ate on the lighter side. First, we shared the biscuits, then the Brussels Sprouts, and lastly, the Orcchiette with Pork Sausage. Back to the biscuits: They are perfectly flaky and served with the most decadent maple butter that begs to be spread on each and every bite. The Brussels Sprouts drip of butter, hazelnut, and sage. I love Brussels Sprouts, but I LOVE MB Post’s Brussels Sprouts. They are so rich and packed with flavor; I could easily eat 3 orders to myself. This was my first time trying the Orcchiette, and I hope it is on the menu when I return. It was served with Pork Sausage, Rapini, Parmesan Shavings, and a Soft Egg. We broke the yolk and used it as a sauce to coat the pasta with before we attacked it. The yolk made the already rich pasta, even richer, but still palatable. I was expecting the Pork Sausage to be too heavy for the seemingly light pasta, but it fit very well. The ratio of meat to house-made Orcchiette was excellent.
MB Post was one of the first dining establishments that put Manhattan Beach, and the South Bay for that matter, on the map. Many have continued to follow in its footsteps and hold their own. I have heard numerous recommendations to try their brunch, so that is on my to-do list for my next visit to the South Bay!

Painting the Town Pink with Walk With Sally
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a local organization has partnered with local brands and businesses to paint the town pink, for a good cause. Walk With Sally‘s mission is to provide mentoring and support services to children that have a parent or sibling with cancer or have lost a parent or sibling to cancer. The mentors are outstanding individuals that have lost a close family member or have survived cancer themselves, and they help guide the children in the program through the trails, tribulations, and grief. The founder’s mother, Sally, passed away from breast cancer when he was young. Many of the children in the program have lost their moms to breast cancer. There are two mentors who are breast cancer survivors. It is safe to say that October is especially meaningful to the organization. Their partnerships entail different events and promotions throughout the month in which a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the organization. These partnered businesses are their Breast Friends.
They recently hosted a Paint the Town Pink event in Downtown Manhattan Beach, where businesses like Trina Turk, Bella Beach, iRunMB, and more, hosted mini-parties featuring sweets, drinks, giveaways, and sales. I had a great time shopping last week at this event! In addition, they are hosting month-long promotions; some of my favorites include, Strawberry Glazed Donuts from Two Guns Espresso, Pink Velvet Cupcakes from Cake Backe Shop, and a cheeky card from Julie Ann Art.
I encourage you to take a look at their campaign and participate in one of their events or promotions if you are local.
