Final Zagat meal #10 brought The Monster to Rancho Palos Verdes and Lunada Bay House. After two thousand different restaurants and finally into the last ten perhaps The Monster’s standards are skewed. Or perhaps he just wants to be wowed before this adventure ends. Because there isn’t necessarily anything egregiously wrong with LBH. And yet, there isn’t anything terribly right either.
Lunada Bay House is a boring restaurant. It plays it safe. It serves up pedestrian food that you’d gloss over at weddings. It does it with nice enough service in an ugly enough room. If that’s your thing then drive the ten million miles to Palos Verdes and go for it.
