New kid in town, the Belamar Hotel in Manhattan Beach. Definitely worth checking out. And while you're at it, go over for the best steak of your life at Shula's at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel. The Hotel was renovated by Kor Hotel Group and looks dynamite with dramatic new lobby and enhancements throughout. Loved Shula's. Man can you sink your teeth into one of the former Miami Dolphin's coach's cuts (yep, that's who owns the joint).Stay tune for more hotel and restaurant updates, heading over to the new, spiffy, yuppie-haven Shade, opening also in Manhattan Beach. This one sounds over the top, will let you know.
