One of the highlights from my recent trip to LA was getting to eat a delicious, decadent lunch at Gladstone's Malibu where the boy and I indulged in an unapologetically gigantic platter of fresh seafood. There's really nothing equivalent to the experience of beachside dining - hearing the waves rhythmically lap against the shore, feeling the cool ocean breeze and the warm California sun reach your skin all at once, feeling a sense of peace and serenity that is lost and unknown in a city like New York - all while simultaneously diving into the freshest iced seafood tower I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Mm California livin'.
