Welcome to episode three of "Malibu's Most Interesting," where we delve into the heart of Malibu, spotlighting the people and places that define its unique charm. This week, I'm excited to feature a conversation with Franco Simplicio, a mentor, friend, and the creative force behind several iconic Malibu restaurants, such as Moonshadows, Ca De Sole, and the Sunset.

Franco's bond with Malibu began in childhood, after he moved from Italy to Los Angeles. Recognizing a need for quality family dining spots, Franco embarked on a journey to transform the local dining scene. His establishments have since become beacons of joy, offering superb cuisine, lively events, and live music, enriching the Malibu community.
