In 2007, after an illustrious career in the culinary world with the creation of several successful restaurants following his graduation from Cornell’s prestigious Hotel School, Mike Simms (along with his brother Chris) decided Manhattan Beach needed a neighborhood spot where they could experience a simple, delicious burger and some quality craft beer and wine. In 2009, Simmzy’s was born. After carefully growing the concept in strategically chosen neighborhoods in Southern California, he chose Pacific City. Situated in a front-and-center location adjacent to the main Event’s Plaza with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the iconic HB pier, Simmzy’s offers the most mouthwatering and innovative burgers, billing themselves, quite appropriately, as a local pub featuring artisan foods, craft beers and small production wines. This is neighborhood fare at its best, with a surfer’s sensibility and a great time and atmosphere at the heart of a place you’ll want to come back to again and again. “Meet me at Simmzy’s” will no doubt soon become a familiar and often repeated statement in your personal vocabulary!
