Exploring Long Beach from its neighborhoods to its beaches and water sports works up a powerful appetite. Fortunately, delicious relief is always close at hand.
Here are a few of the spots I tried and recommend.
|An omelet from the Omelette Inn will set you up for the day.|
|Sample of sushi from McKenna's.|
|MOLAA, home of Viva Cafe.|
|The scallops at Sir Winston's.|
|Crabcake at Queensview Steakhouse.|
Long Beach is known for its ethnic diversity and you can get a taste of it in the restaurants along Pine Avenue.
|SIP is a lively spot to start your evening.|
|Everyone's Greek at George's.|
|The decor at Alegria adds to the lively atmosphere.|
|L'Opera Ristorante takes Italian cuisine to an elegant level.|
L'Opera Ristorante, another of Chef Cotta's creations, is an elegant setting where talented performers sing for your supper. It's Italian, if you haven't guessed, and we ate every morsel of the dessert samplings even though we were already stuffed. Next time I want to start there. Do save room for the panna cotta. Another stair-free restaurant.
