4. The Social List

You are in for a treat with this outstanding restaurant. To give you an idea of how they do things, here are some mottos they live by: “Food is communal; it’s meant to be enjoyed and shared”, “The best food is made from simple, high quality ingredients and prepared with love”, and “We at The Social List strive to bring the best quality food to Long Beach. The sausages are handmade, the bread is fresh baked, and the produce is locally sourced”.  If that does not entice you, they have another trick up their sleeve. They search all over the world and HANDPICK wine, spirits, and craft beer especially for their customers! Now that is what I call customer service.
