The other day, some friends and I were driving around Malibu, trying to figure out where to eat a nice dinner. Thankfully, we ventured into Charlie’s! Owned by Charlie DiLorenzo, this chic restaurant and lounge is decorated to a T. A glass blown chandelier, with-it photography, neutral tones, and (drum roll, please) leopard Dolce and Gabbana dining chairs. Yes, you read that correctly. You will be enjoying your meal in D&G chairs, but no, you cannot take them home with you.
The mood is set with dim lighting, and the night we were there, live music was delivered by a girl with true talent. I am assuming at this point in the article you are probably wondering about the food. WELL, let me assure you, the grub at Charlie’s is amazing from fresh salads, such as the watermelon salad, (watermelon, feta, cucumber, arugula, and balsamic), to their delicious fish dishes, (the salmon was ta-da). Oh, and their steaks, burgers, and pasta…everything that was ordered at our table was so scrumptious. They also have one hundred and fifty wine labels, and a menu of original cocktails. Charlie herself came by the table, and she was truly a gem! She was so pleasant, and sincerely made us feel like guests in her home. When you leave, you will be offered bubblegum from a wooden box. Um, too cute! Dining at Charlie’s is definitely a wonderful experience, and I plan on going back many more times. So please, take my word for it! Eat at Charlie’s in Malibu! It is to die for.
