Rockless Spotlight: Fishing With Dynamite - Manhattan Beach, Ca

A celebration of summers spent on Virginia’s Eastern Shore and SoCal’s vibrant beach communities. Fishing With Dynamite is a cheerful, 32-seat restaurant anchored by a lively oyster bar featuring a menu of “old school” traditional seafood fare and “new school” dishes highlighting flavors from around the globe. @eat_fwd has been celebrated for serving only the most pristine seafood with accolades that include “Best Oyster Bar” and Best New Restaurant by Los Angeles Magazine, OpenTable’s 100 Best Restaurants in America (2016, 2017 and 2019) and a Michelin Plate in 2019.

From Michelin Guide: This tight and warm seafood spot is located just down the block from the ocean. Inside, it has a decidedly beachy vibe, flooded with sunlight and colors that make it feel cozy even when it's loud and busy. Raw bar dishes comprise half the menu, and if the list of oysters, clams and lobsters seems overwhelming, the friendly staff make sense of it all. The other half of the menu features classics like gumbo, crab cakes and New England clam chowder with meaty bivalves with chunks of bacon and potatoes. Don’t miss out on the Mexican white shrimp ceviche or Chef David´s mom´s Cape Cod squash rolls. Some desserts are seasonal (blueberry lattice pie), but the Key lime pie is served year-round.

Since the inception of FWD’s sister restaurant M.B. Post in 2011, Chef David has been hard at work crafting a family of restaurants including Fishing with Dynamite, The Arthur J, and RYLA. Among this diverse group of restaurants, lives a vast catalog of critically acclaimed dishes & local favorites. 

We are proud to have our Rockless Table bases installed at FWD, stop in and see them next time you’re in Manhattan Beach, CA!
