Always calls up beautiful visions of hibiscus-blood-orange margaritas and spot-prawn corn dogs in the sun.
And lo, your visions have finally become reality...
Drop anchor at Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar, a new oceanside spread of fresh seafood and beachy cocktails, soft-opening tomorrow and officially opening May 15 over the Pacific.
Next time you don’t feel like sitting in the sun nursing a Hemingway daiquiri with some bivalves and lobster, stop for a moment and ponder what’s wrong with you. Then head to these twin wooden cottages on the pier. Grab a seat on the wide deck outside the bar on your left. Yes. That’s better.
Or if you’ve arrived around sunset for a date-y dinner, head into the cottage on your right. It’s a big dining room with Malibu tile floors under a coiled Dutch rope chandelier, vintage surfboards and a real-life whale rib. (For added romance.) At your two-top overlooking the water, you’ve got uni deviled eggs and those spot-prawn corn dogs coming.
Or not. Menus will change quite a bit, according to what’s fresh. They even have their own fisherman who forages daily.
And he’s eyeing Employee of the Month.
