When you live in a city as aggressively spread out as LA, the term ‘destination restaurant’ comes up a lot. Because no matter where you’re going, you’re getting in the car and driving somewhere else. And you need an exciting term to get your stupid friends out of their apartments.
But what does a destination restaurant even mean? Obviously, the food must be killer, and the vibe better be close to perfect, with a space that’s worth sitting an hour on the freeway to see. You want a full experience. A rooftop. Maybe some gastronomy. And Chrissy Teigen getting weird in the corner.
What about a ten-table seafood shack on a side street in Manhattan Beach? Not particularly.
