Last Tuesday evening I had the pleasure of dining at one of my favorite Malibu restaurants. My friend Katie came to visit from Walla Walla , Oregon where she owns a fabulous restaurant The Green Spoon. The Carbon Beach Club is one of Katie’s favorite dining venues and she was kind enough to treat me to a fabulous dinner .
Just sitting on the ocean front patio watching the waves come in as the sun sets is a treat. Now picture a great glass of Chardonnay and delicious meal to make the experience sublime. Our waiter, Tracy was very gracious and helped navigate us through the wine list, as well as the evening specials. I enjoyed a delicious Branzino with a side of Chinese long beans .sea beans in Kung Pao sauce. Katie enjoyed a savory Rib Eye.
When the Malibu Beach Inn first opened its restaurant they were only permitted to serve food to hotel guests! Lucky for us Malibu locals dining at Carbon Beach Club was eventually opened to the public . The weekdays offer special nights : Tuesday “Flat Bread and Brews”, “Wine off Wednesdays “offer 1/2 bottles of wine with Cheese Charcuterie and special menu items, followed by Thursday’s” Burger and Chimay” special followed by “Mixology” Fridays 3:30 to 10:00 PM (a great way to start the weekend).
Everyday there is a Lobby Menu from 3:30 to 5:30 where you may enjoy a beverage and snack on the ocean front patio. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Dinner served nightly from 5:30-9:30 PM. Reservations recommended 310-456-6444.
