Want to celebrate somewhere deluxe? Head over to Auberge at Barnabey's Hotel in Manhattan Beach, possibly the most romantic dining room in the South Bay. This elegant Victorian restaurant, lit by small red chandeliers, features intimate booths, partially shielded with red velvet drapes.

Hartman previously served for five years at Gourmet magazine, ending as publisher. He is one of a dozen staffers leaving as a result of the changes.
