Mike and Chris Simms opened their second outpost of Simmzy's in Long Beach this weekend, bringing even more taps, burgers and Anne Conness's menu is similar in spirit to the original location, but featuring new additions like farmers' market fritters and wood-fired pizzas, plus weekend brunch. Specials change nightly, with homey dishes like chicken pot pie (Tuesdays) and cioppino (Wednesdays) served family-style. With more than 30 beers and 10 boutique wines on tap, the biggest difference is in what you'll be drinking. There are almost no bottles, a very green decision. The room was designed by the same firm that did M.B. Post: reclaimed wood and communal tables seem to be de rigueur for the beach communities these days.
