HELP!! It seems like there really isn't much in the way of terrific restaurants in the area of Torrance, Redondo Beach (including Hermosa, Manhattan, too), Palos Verdes, San Pedro. Yes, there's lots of fast food joints. Yes, there are a few OLD well known places of some merit. But I'm looking for new(-ish), good, interesting places. It helps if they have good wine lists but really it's great grub that is foremost. Price is ALWAYS an issue but really I'm not fussed if the value is good.
So can anyone give me some inspiration?
