Last night was my first dining experience at this Manhattan Beach French cuisine stalwart. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Good food, especially the specials, good service and a lot of energy. Our server told us that on 4-13-2014 the place is shutting down and will remodel and reinvent itself as an Italian restaurant. The good news for Francophiles is that some of the experienced staff and French cuisine will transfer to a related restaurant nearby. Good luck to the owners i n their new venture.
