Guy Gabriele, the owner of Manhattan Beach’s 35-year-old Cafe Pierre, is getting out of the game, he tells Easy Reader News today. Gabriele first launched the French restaurant as a small crêperie in 1977, transforming it into Cafe Pierre two years later, then establishing it as a fine-dining destination in the eighties, when he introduced the South Bay to guest-chefs like Michel Richard and Patrick Healy. Gabriele tells the paper he’ll soon be turning the reigns over to his daughter, who may “make some changes” at the restaurant. [ERN]
