Tin Roof Bistro, actually located in a terracotta roofed Mission-style building in the Manhattan Beach Village Mall, is an exceptional entry in the areas restaurant scene that evokes the Italy-California connection embodied by the Sonoma wine region. A wood-fired pizza oven smolders away as interpretive variations on local comfort food are ferried to wine-happy guests after they have made their selections from the gigantic list of reds and whites from California and beyond. Of course, pizza isn't all that's on offer at Tin Roof. The caramelized Brussels sprouts and lightly browned fried calamari light up the appetizers menu along with several salads, sandwiches and soups. Tin Roof has a wide selection of vegetarian dishes, going so far as to stock house-made lasagna with ultra thin noodles. While the huge list of, mostly Napa-grown, wines takes center stage, Tin Roof has dreamed up some amazing cocktails such as the Champagne Mojito, a standard mojito finished with a splash of champagne rather than soda. Beautifully designed dining areas, an expansive patio featuring a bubbling fountain, and a sun-soaked front porch with a complimentary bocce ball court brings a warm touch of Tuscany to the beachy environs of Manhattan Beach.
