In addition to enjoying a sublime view of the Holiday Fireworks by the pier, Executive Creative Chef Neal Fraser and Executive Chef Greg Hozinsky have created a decadent five-course feast to welcome the winter holidays. 
 
“Our annual Holiday Fireworks is such a wonderful tradition in Manhattan Beach and with our stunning vantage point and floor-to-ceiling windows here, at the foot of the Manhattan Beach Pier, we thought we would kick the celebration up a notch -- and match the view of the fireworks with a stellar culinary display of our own,” said Owner Michael Zislis.
