Geoffrey’s Malibu: A Recipe for a Classic Restaurant

Many ingredients combine to create a classic restaurant. First and foremost, it takes a grand beginning. A start that conveys a sense of pedigree and of great things to come.

Geoffrey’s Malibu certainly has met that standard. Located on the site of the former Holiday House, a resort/hotel/watering hole to the stars for decades, it was designed by world-famous architect Richard Neutra. It opened its doors in 1948, and immediately established itself as the ultimate destination, hosting the gods and goddesses of its day, including Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, and Lana Turner. Holiday House attracted more than just the crème de la crème of Hollywood, though-it also was the place where a then-unknown senator from Massachusetts by the name of John F. Kennedy began a lengthy affair with Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe.
Certainly, a classic restaurant had been born.
As one classic died, though, a new one was born. In 1983, Holiday House ended its glorious run when Harvey Baskin, a financier/gourmand/nature lover, purchased it and created what is known today as Geoffrey’s Malibu.


Tra di Noi Ristorante

“Italian eatery Tra di Noi is one of Malibu’s most popular eateries and Executive Chef Francesco Velasco is a big part of it’s enduring popularity.”

“Velasco describes his menu as ‘cucina autentica’ or authentic italian cooking prepared with passion. His pastas are handmade daily and he makes what many consider to be the tastiest pizza in town. He searches for the freshest cuts of meat and fish, and pairs them with winter staples like leeks, artichokes, wild mushrooms, eggplant and green beans.
For Velasco, the secret to the holidays is ‘cooking from the heart’.



Indulge in a dining experience that will scintillate all your senses. Watch the water swallow a lazy, sinking sun. Hear the soothing sounds of the waves crashing on the beach.
