Fishing With Dynamite: A Mouth Watering Explosion

When it comes to FRESH seafood. It doesn’t get much more fresh than this!

Again just like any other restaurant curated by Chef David, the menu is constantly changing with the season to keep up with what's fresh. Chef David works closely with his team and Chef Alice Mai to curate a cohesive menu inspired by the summers he spent on Virginia’s eastern shore and So Cal’s vibrant beach communities.

The quaint 32 seat restaurant is anchored in Manhattan Beach California featuring a lively oyster bar and a great mix of old school traditional seafood fare and new school dishes highlighting flavors from around the globe and directly from the bay here in california. Fwd has been received many accolades that include

Best Oyster Bar by LA magazine

Best New restaurant by LA magazine

Open Tables 100 Best Restaurants 2016,2017,2019,2022

Michelin Plate 2019

My overall experience at FWD was amazing the staff was caring, polite, and extremely attentive. Chef Alice knows how to get your palette fired up and tingling in ways you've never felt before. From the way I thought I hated lobster all the way down to crab cakes! I will definitely be back whenever I get to the Manhattan Beach area again!
