Yesterday, my hubby and I decided to venture out to Manhattan Beach for a late lunch after shoe shopping in El Segundo (More on my Seychelle warehouse shopping spree later!).
He looked up Twelve Highland on his iphone and described it as New American (such Top Chef speak!). This place was way cute with modern decor. Imagine wispy white curtains, white poofy lanterns, black tablecloths, and black velvet chairs.
We ordered the manchego chicken salad (arugula, frisse, manchego, pistachio, grape) and kobe burger (lettuce, tomato, onion, cheddar, and a house sauce). Deliciouso! The Texan waiter told us that the chef is from Water Grille in LA and said the menu is awesome. (I agree!)
