On Monday, March 16th, Darren’s Restaurant is hosting a special 5 course dinner featuring the Macallan Brand of Scotch. If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know this isn’t my first time at Darren’s. This past summer, I was introduced to this gem of a place located in beautiful Manhattan Beach, just steps away from the beach. The food at Darren’s is beyond amazing, and they also are very Gluten Free friendly!
Be sure to check that out as well in: Gluten Free Fine Dining at Darren’s in Manhattan Beach! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of this very special event happening on March 16th, so come take a look at what’s in store! If you are not able to attend this event, as I believe it has already sold out, I still highly recommend checking this place out and also giving The Macallan a try! (Full Press Story)
I recently had an opportunity to attend a special tasting menu for Darren’s Restaurant in Manhattan Beach. The event is a food / Macallan single malt scotch pairing which will be held on March 16. The event is already sold out.
So why write about it? Because the food was absolutely delicious and a food / scotch pairing is something that I never thought about before. (Full Press Story)
Understanding Darren’s, the upscale and quality-obsessed California cuisine restaurant in downtown Manhattan Beach, requires more than a recitation of its awards. Those recognitions certainly have piled up: a top-25 restaurants in L.A. ranking from Zagat, commendation for its wine list from Wine Spectator and citations for its service, among others.
To understand Darren’s requires more than a familiarity with its menu. It’s true, of course, that chef/owner Darren Weiss’s training in some of Hawaii’s finest kitchens is in evidence in the lineup of offerings. Apparent on the menu, too, is Darren’s quality-centric sourcing of ingredients, including dry-aged USDA Prime beef, fish brought in daily and house-made sauces and spices. (Full Press Story)
