where I’d like to go for lunch

I’ve had a real hankering for some time on the west coast for a while now, I am not sure what has brought it on {aside from a brutally long and cold winter}, but even with the arrival of summer, it doesn’t seem  to be going away. The lifestyle, farm to table movement and overall healthy laid back approach to life would be a refreshing break from the fast paced Northeast life for a bit. The idea of a lifestyle more centered around health and wellness is one that I have become increasingly drawn to as I get older.

This is one of those posts I wish I could have done on-site; meaning having visited the venue and reported back to you on it with my own photos and experience to talk about, However I found it too interesting not to share based on my recent discovery of it on-line, and when I go in person, I look forward to sharing my personal experience and photos with you…In the meantime, you need to know about the Malibu Farm Pier Café located just there, on the Malibu Pier on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Hello million dollar view!!

 

Malibu Farm Pier Cafe  Malibu Farm Pier Cafe | the local rosemalibu_farm_cafe_malibu_pier_fresh_organic_local_in_the_cut_60fb4c60fc85137aeaf8d01785420c361399048545640

The restaurant was started by Helene Henderson who launched the restaurant as a pop-up last year and has opened it for breakfast, lunch and dinner this year due to the positive response she’s received.  The space has a minimal, rustic and very clean aesthetic and designed by Vanessa Alexander and the menu incorporates seasonal ingredients from Helen’s own 2-acre organic farm.

Some of the menu highlights include a chicken, ricotta & bacon burger, salmon sandwich with olive tapenade and cauliflower lavash pizza.  And the view makes it a must stop as you drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, however this is a venue that’s so much more than a view, the true beauty lies in the menu and the ingredients that go into it.

If you are interested in some of the recipes, The Local Rose shared a beautiful post about her experience there along with some recipes.  Click here to view them.

In the meantime, should you get there before I do, please share your experience – we’d love to hear about it.
