That’s the thing about assumptions; when one assumes, one often is wrong and taking the time to investigate for one’s self is always better than pre-judging. This is as true for restaurants as it is for people, and I am happy to report that our family’s dinner at Carbon Beach was one of the loveliest I have enjoyed in a long time. From the valet’s kindness in helping us with Baby when we pulled up to being greeted by name by the attentive maitre d’ to the unbelievably good children’s menu they offered without request, I was astounded by the warmth and service standards of this restaurant. There wasn’t a whiff of snootiness or pretension in the air at Billionaire’s Beach, just the soft tang of the Pacific and a few gulls flying overhead.
