Marina Wine Bar makes its debut during Dine Out Long Beach, Restaurant Week 2.0 this year with a fabulous new menu of small plates, curated wine list, select craft beer and completely remodeled space. The location, formerly occupied by the Five O'clock Wine Bar, Marina Wine Bar is open daily for happy hour and dinner featuring live entertainment on select evenings.
The art of food + wine collide at this hidden gem in Long Beach's East Village neighborhood. Its gallery-like setting, curated wine list, and menu of small bites and flatbreads make this a favorite destination to gather with friends. Red, white and, yes, some brews are thoughtfully selected and ever changing representing vintners both domestically and abroad.
Husband and wife team, Ray and Lynn Lasher, are at the helm of this popular dining destination in Belmont Shore. Featuring a menu of classic dishes with contemporary twists, as well as some favorite signature items from the original Lasher's (including the famed meatloaf, fried green tomatoes and creamy clam chowder), Lasher's Kitchen is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner and offers brunch on the weekends. The thoughtful wine and beer list, coupled with Lynn and Ray's hospitality, have made this a go-to place for locals and visitors alike.
Reminiscent of the neighborhood restaurants found in cities like San Francisco or NYC, Taste Wine-Beer-Kitchen is part wine bar, part restaurant. The chef-driven menu features an array of farm-to-table small plates with wine pairings as well as unique microbrew pairings on tap. Located in Belmont Heights, Taste is the quintessential destination to spend an evening with friends pouring over the sommelier curated wine list or chatting with owners Laurie and Erin. It's also a destination for weekend brunch. Next door is Olives Gourmet Grocer, part of the Taste Wine-Beer-Kitchen family, featuring prepared meals to-go and shelves stocked with all the essentials needed to stock your personal pantry and wine cellar.
