One Night in Redondo Beach: ?
We will spend a night at the Crowne Plaza in Redondo Beach in January. No car. Please enlighten us with your dinner & breakfast suggestions within easy walking distance. Cheers!
If you want to experience an excellent Izakaya then Bincho, featuring Japanese grilled pub food is just a short stroll away from your hotel down on the Redondo Beach Pier.
For breakfast the Ruby's right across the street from your hotel is decent: http://www.rubys.com/
And also along the International Boardwalk (basically part of the Redondo Beach pier complex) is Quality Seafood where they will cook your "swimming only a minute ago" lunch or dinner, which you then take to one of the picnic tables and consume.
There is a little Japanese restaurant called Oriental Breeze on the pier that is shockingly good - any night you go in there most of the customers will be speaking Japanese. Sushi is excellent and they have many Osaka specialties, including some very traditional dishes like the tripe stew. For breakfast try Halibut Corner for Vietnamese and seafood - it's a great casual stop, albeit with slightly uncomfortable seating. It's at the north end of the "Boardwalk," just across from the hotel.
