      If Bincho is walkable, and you're a beer drinker, don't miss the 88 taps at Najas a few doors down.

    2. 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:

      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.

        One other inexpensive place for fresh fish in a basic atmosphere is the Redondo Beach location of Malibu Fish Grill which is an easy 15 minute walk from your hotel:

      2. For a short taxi ride:

        Breakfast at The Original Pancake House on Pacific Coast Hwy in Redondo Beach.

        Dinner at MB Post on Manhattan Ave in Manhattan Beach.

        1. 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.

            Sounds good. If we miss the cruise, maybe we'll just stay in Redondo Beach!
