The Strand's Michael Zislis is ready to add to the list of chef-driven restaurants in Manhattan Beach. Circa is his new creation, and he's bringing former Palate Food & Wine chef Octavio Becerra along to care for the kitchen. Now deep in construction mode, the casual eatery sports a long, perhaps 15-seat bar. The spacious size will be ideal for enjoying a Julian Cox cocktail. Now hiring, and hoping to open early next month, Circa sounds like a winner.
