Bill Miller, owner of Malibu Kitchen, likes things a certain way.

“What’s my go-to order?” he said. “I take grilled chicken with some prosciutto, put some truffle cheese in there, add pesto and a little mustard in a whole wheat wrap. I melt that together then I add cold coleslaw and roasted tomatoes.”

The meticulous nature of Miller’s taste buds has earned Malibu Kitchen special distinction as one of the only eateries in Malibu to make it to its 14th birthday, which Miller is celebrating this week.

There’s something familiar about the Malibu Roadhouse.
It might be that it occupies the space that used to house the BeauRivage, a storied Malibu restaurant. It might be its familiar position, across PCH from Dan Blocker Beach — a section of Malibu most residents cruise through daily.

Malibu resident Tova Fagan said jewelry design came to her on her birthday eight years ago in Las Vegas.

“I was celebrating with my family when we walked by a particular shop with a bracelet in the window,” she said.

The bracelet transfixed Fagan with its thoughtfully beaded pattern and a diamond charm dangling from its center. Its only off-putting component was the “ginormous” sum of money scrawled on its price tag.
