David LeFevre

Fishing with Dynamite and MB Post, Manhattan Beach, CA

After racking up endless accolades for his artisanal American cuisine at MB Post in the laid-back seaside community of Manhattan Beach, just south of Los Angeles, JBF Award semi-finalist David LeFevre opened his second concept, Fishing with Dynamite, next door. Join us at the Beard House for a taste of the Charlie Trotter’s and Water Grill alum’s innovative, upscale fish shack fare.
