Long Beach recommendations for Saturday night

katiasasha Aug 31, 2007 06:32 PM

We're heading to the Blues Festival tomorrow, and wanted a restaurant recommendation for afterwards, probably around 7pm, preferably close to CSULB. Looking for a nice place, any type of cuisine, as we're treating our friends who treated us to the tickets for the Blues Festival. :)

    Jimmy's is good for Seafood near PCH and Westminster. If you really want to impress, Spaghettini's on Seal Beach Blvd. will do it.

      For great French, check out Frenchy's Bistro. For solid American/traditional go to Lasher's. Frenchy's is on Termino and Lasher's is on Broadway near Redondo. Both are within a 10 minute drive of CSULB.

        It is right on the beach. Good food. Good service. If you get there around 7.00 pm you probably catch a sunset.They have a lot of good beer on the tab that you can try. I love " Seafood Leo" -Shrimp, scallops, salmon & halibut baked in filo dough with lobster cream sauce.

          Enriques is a good mexican food place on PCH, very near the school. It's got a casual feel to it, but from the menu, you can tell it's more upscale style. Great specials and service. Everything is homemade but it's all very reasonably priced.

          Sushi Studio, also on PCH is very good sushi, mostly rolls. It's a small restaurant and everyone loves this place. It gets busy, but the wait is never too long.

          These are my two favorite places in that area. Both within 5 miles (or closer to CSULB) and both have never let me down.

            Benley, in east Long Beach, small place in a strip mall but clean slightly trendy decor and Vietnamese food.

            Delius, in Signal Hill, not far from the Cherry exit off the 405. Upscale but not overpriced. Reservations needed.

              I second the vote for Enriques. I highly recommend the pork shank and any fish with the butter sauce. You can expect a 30-minute wait for a table. Look for me tonight!
