Best of the BeachOpen Sesame – The South Bay’s most stylish Middle Eastern restaurant introduced a new level of sophistication when they opened in 2009 – we had explored this cuisine before, but never in such variety. Locals lined up for tables filled with plates of appetizers and glasses of wine from the very good list, followed by platters of subtly spiced grilled meats. They’re still packing the place, attracted by fine food in an atmosphere that is contemporary but evokes the Arabian Nights.
Open Sesame: 2640 PCH, MB. (310) 545-1600.
Runner-up: Sabra Beirut Mix, 500 N. Pac. Cst. Hwy., HB. (310) 376-8226.
