Bacon-laden fish soups and tequila sours from the MB Post guy

Interior at Fishing With Dynamite

Yes, of course it's what Wile E. Coyote does when he wants to eat salmon, but Fishing with Dynamite's also an intimate, raw-bar-abetted seafoodery from the MB Post guy, right in the heart of Manhattan Beach. The Michelin-starred chef's killin' it with all sorts of water-born foods, including classics like blue-crab crabcakes w/ homemade pickles and this bacon-laden New England clam chowder. They've got bigger plates too, like this miso-glazed Alaskan black cod, and -- for the water-averse -- a flat iron steak with shishito peppers. Science points out that everything can be washed down with booze, which explains why they've got a tequila sour w/ strawberry and chili, as well as this whiskey/Aperol/grapefruit "Original Gangster". And no, that isn't a Yosemite Sam reference.
