Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA
I live in Hollywood , California and it is rare I get time to get out of Los Angeles, but when I do I absolutely love escaping to Redondo Beach and going to either Tony's, on the redondo pier. I am partial to Old Tony's because I love the Old School charm and feel of the place. As soon as you walk in, there is a cozy brick fireplace to sit around and have a cocktail before dinner. Beyond the fireplace are the tables with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the ocean right below. Every seat in the house is a great one. My favorite thing on the menu is the Halibut Paccata, it is so good. EVERY meal comes with Soup and Salad, so much food, always a doggie bag for the next day. Anyway, I have never had a bad experience at Tony's and it is the best escape from the City by far. It's as though I go on a mini vacation with each visit.
