Los Angeles - Tin Roof Bistro

Manhattan Beach is a cool place to hang in LA.  Tin Roof Bistro is a cute place in the area, drawing its decor from the Northern Californian region, with a huge emphasis on wine country.

Old crates are used to make the tables, used wine bottles now used for serving water to diners, and they even have a mini vineyard where they're trying to grow grapes at the entrance.  Unfortunately, I didn't see any though.

I went for lunch where they have a typical American cafe menu but spruced up to have modern influences from other lands, with tuna spring rolls and tapas goat and honey.  

We were in a hurry so I chose the Pizza Bianca with Prosciutto, without the garlic.  But the rest of the mozarella, fontina, parmesan and balsamic were a nice combination against the salty prosciutto.  My only complaint was that the pizza base was a little greasy and burnt but if you like it rustic, you would be happy.  

The dinner menu is a lot more bistro like with classics like Steak Frites and sounds enticing enough for a second visit.  Perhaps on my next visit in June..
