A friend of mine attended the TESOL conference last week in Long Beach, and I had posted on this board for her asking about where should she eat. Anyway, I told her she would have to let me (and all the nice folks who gave advice) know about how the food was. So here's her report:
I ate at Parker's Lighthouse twice. It's in
Shoreline Village. There were about 14 of us last night, and everyone liked their meal. We all had various seafood dishes. I had a blackened yellowtail one evening and blacked tuna another. They were both good. Although it was expensive, the restaurant is right on the water, and the service was very good.
6 of us stopped at the Yard House on the way back
to our hotels. Of the drinkers, everyone liked the beer. However, it was really noisy, so we went
outside to get away from it. I actually liked the other recommended beer place better - but I'm not much of a beer drinker. But they had real nice outside seating. Didn't eat food at either place.
I had lunch at La Muse - East Village Cafe.
They had crepes which is something I had been longing for. A poster had mentioned that it was next to the recommended Modica's Italian deli. The crepe was made of cheeses, spinach, mushrooms, and chicken. It was very good.
I also had lunch another day at the recommended
King's Fish House. I had a fresh tuna salad. The tuna salad part was a large portion and very good. The greens under it were average. That was a little disappointing as it was relatively expensive.
