Discover LA published its list of the best restaurants in South Bay and I think it’s a pretty good one (although with so many great restaurants in South Bay, I’m sure they missed some!):
Here are my posts of the ones I’ve been to:

I’ve been meaning to try Fishing with Dynamite and Little Sister, both in Manhattan Beach. Has anyone been? I haven’t heard of Coni’s Seafood or Mar’sel… I guess they’ll go on the to-eat list now!

There are a lot of sushi places in LA. But what sets this place apart from the rest is their uni-don aka fresh sea urchin bowl. The uni is from California, and not imported, so it is very fresh. It’s a more delicate, refreshing and sweeter uni than the typical one you’d find at sushi restaurants. The uni-don is a good deal during lunch time, at $15 a bowl (choose from sushi rice or reg rice – go with the sushi rice!) which comes with a salad a miso soup – perfect for light eaters. For average eaters, you might want to order and split a lunch combination with the uni-don. The fried oysters and teriyaki chicken are good choices.
You never want to go back to regular uni after this place!
Salad and miso soup – the soup is loaded with shredded vegetables!
