Park Chalet and Beach Chalet are definitely not the tourist traps we've come to expect from oceanfront restaurants. As I found out with a recent visit, the Chalets attract a loyal following of locals with distinctive beers and tasty food (and great weeknight specials.)
Stella & Dot recently nabbed the No. 67 spot on Inc. Magazine's annual list of the top 500 quickly-growing companies. I especially loved Inc.'s accompanying interview with Jessica DiLullo Herrin, Stella & Dot's founder and CEO. I had a feeling that she was a very interesting person and decided to search around a bit for more info on her.
