Great clam chowder, great location. All the classics you would want from a good seafood place: sourdough bread, fresh sea food, good service. The interior decor could use a punch up, but the location on the beach is unbeatable.
3 Amigos Restaurant
139 N Reino Rd, Newbury Park, CA 91320
For people who are missing Manny's Mexican Grill (the previous occupant of this location) 3 Amigo's is a welcomed replacement. While very different from the previous establishment it offers some some of my favorite burritos around. All of the ingredients are fresh, well seasoned, and nicely prepared. They do the little things like throwing pasilla peppers into the burrito and lightly grilling the outside of the burrito to melt the cheese, but not overcooking it so it becomes hard or flaky
The salsa bar is good, although not markedly better than any other mexican restaurant's salsa bar.
They've got horchata and tortilla soup that are also good options.
Give it a shot, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
807 Americana Way, Glendale, CA 91210
Granvile is one of our favorites. They have fantastic burgers and as weird as it sounds their side-salad is one of my favorite foods. Happy-hour has good prices on drinks (we opt for a pitcher of sangria) and the sweet-potato fries have a nice hint of rosemary that makes all the difference. Some of their booths inside sink a little low, but the heated patio is perfect. Finally, if you've still got room for dessert the Lickety Split is a big banana split uses their homemade ice cream and is pretty killer.
