A friend is looking for an elegant place to dine in Long Beach in conjunction with Long Beach Opera next month. I think he's taking a little old lady out to dinner. I told him the only place I really like is King's Fish House, but it isn't fancy. Has anyone been to The Madison across Pine Ave. in the converted bank building?
Don't suggest L'Opera unless it's had a major overhaul in the last few years. The last time we ate there several years ago the waiters were singing Happy Birthday in Italian about every ten minutes. It was truly weird and the food was mediocre.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
