MANHATTAN BEACH. On a sunny day, you could almost believe that it’s the Aegean Sea that rests just outside this beachfront eatery. Inventive Petros combines classic Greek flavors with a wider Mediterranean sensibility. Consider dishes like kokkinisto (beef short ribs braised in tomato sauce and served over spaghetti) or lemon-tinged shrimp and chicken souvlaki. For dessert, it’s hard to resist bougatsa vanilla bean and semolina custard wrapped in filo and served with cinnamon ice cream. No shorts, sandals, or baseball caps are allowed after 5pm.
