Have you tried 12+Highland in MB ?

I did and didn't like it. The food was trying too much. Too many flavors that didn't really belong together and a menu written by a chef desperately trying to impress. the food equivalent to business speak. Food that wanted to think out of the box but kept hitting the glass ceiling.

That being said, the staff was friendly enough and efficient and the bar area was buzzing. 12+Highland would be a great bar to grab a bite but sells itself as a serious restaurant.

What was your experience? Did I go there on an off night?

I don't like the guy but I do like his food and dinner at Petrus in London is one of my top 5 meals ever.

Do you know good restaurants in and around Manhattan Beach ?

I have been in Manhattan beach for a few weeks now, and I am looking for a top notch restaurant. So far in Manhattan Beach itself I have enjoyed Cafe Pierre, Octopus and Mangiamo. I was very disapointed by 12 and Highland. So, for saturday, I am looking for a good, gourmet restaurant in or around the Manhattan Beach / LongBeach area, that would serve some decent French, italian or new american food.

Can you recommend something ?

THanks
