"First time to this "destination" Indian restaurant and I didn't get it. I've had so much better Indian food without the pretense. It's a nice space. Service was quite bad and I was astonished when told that the bar tender refused to make any virgin cocktails. Only what's on the menu (drink by numbers? seriously?)"

Offering Blue Bottle Coffee, Alan Carter's amazing morning pastries and desserts, Thomas Martinez's "Seasonal Progressive" cuisine at lunch, brunch, and dinner, or a glass of wine from our California-only wine list, Mission Beach is open throughout the day and evening to serve you. Come relax in our beautifully appointed, modernist environment designed to revive and replenish whether it be for a casual latte and piece of pie or full course, candlelit dinner.

"it starts with really nice people that make you feel at home in what seems like an unlikely place for a comfortable culinary gem. you feel sincerely welcome. the menu is california fresh with a dash of comfort. lots of good options for starters and mains. wine list is also very good with a focus on california.
Having "found" MBC only recenty, I've been only a couple of times, but I plan to become a regular.

"I always thought of MBC as a breakfast/brunch place, which isn't my thing. So, I'd never been. On a friend's recommendation, I tried it for dinner. It was excellent! The food was great. The people were super nice and gave good advice. It's a really nice space. And again, the food is excellent. I will definitely go back. I might even go for brunch!"

"Dull and uninspired in every respect. The servers were nice, but disorganized even though there were very few guests. Food: octopus wasn' t bad; some sort of tuna tostada was nondescript."

Local is, in every way, a product of its place, local in every sense–local farmers and local tastes, local vendors and local artisans, local community and local people. Our often-changing menu presents sophisticated, fresh, and direct cooking of the best of the markets and ranches.<br />Please see our website for the current menu.<br /><br>Local serves dinners Tuesday - Sunday evenings. We create our menu from the peak season, California vegetables, fruits, meat, and fish. We pour only natural, Californian wines.

"I have been to LME quite a few times. The food is almost always excellent. The service on the other hand is spotty at best. On this visit, it was AWOL and on the rare occasions of fleeting visits to our table, not very useful. Do go. Don't expect good service."
