Bottle Inn

26 22nd Street
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
(310) 376-9595
Cuisine: Italian

A casual, romantic beach institution serving classic Southern Italian dishes.

Chelsea Pub & Lounge

1332 Hermosa Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Cuisine: Casual Fine Dining/Asian Influences

While I don’t post many dining establishments that are first and foremost bars on the Dine Time page, I’m including Chelsea due to some recent changes in their focus. Chelsea has been around for years and is best known as a nighttime hot spot with DJs and dancing. Recently, Chef Darren Weiss of the former Darren’s in Manhattan Beach, moved into the kitchen at Chelsea. (His brother owns the place.) Darren’s was a truly fine dining establishment for 20 years before it closed. Now all those years of kitchen experience can be found at Chelsea… and at a lower price point. Chef Darren has brought some of his best dishes with him and has upped the ante for bar food. Instead of chicken wings, there’s Jidori chicken kebobs; instead of tacos, there’s Asian tostados; instead of fish and chips, there’s seared sesame ahi; instead of a burger, there’s buffalo risotto. The cocktail menu is impressive and I recommend grabbing a window seat and enjoying one with the sunset. There’s still music and dancing later in the evening, so take that into account when making a reservation.

Martha’s 22nd Street Grill

25 22nd Street
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
(310) 376-7786
Cuisine: American

I like to go for breakfast. An extensive menu featuring unique dishes. Always packed but worth the wait.

Palmilla Cocina y Tequila

39 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA
Reservations: 310-503-7722
Cuisine: Regionally Influenced Mexican

Fine dining has returned to Pier Plaza! They offer traditional dishes but the regional specialties are mouth-watering. FYI: A table on the cozy patio is a great spot for a date.

Radici Ristorante

934 Hermosa Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
(310) 318-0778
Cuisine: Northern Italian

If you’ve spent any time browsing my choices on this Dine Time page, it should be obvious Italian food is my go-to cuisine, and I adore everything about this recent entry to the South Bay dining scene. The interior is sleek and contemporary, the cocktails are creative, and the food is some of the best I’ve ever had. Radici is a family affair, with the front of the house overseen by Laura Francisco, but it’s her mama, Lucia Gaspari, who reigns in the kitchen – she comes in every day and makes the pasta from scratch. This is authentic Italian and every dish is made to order. The staff is knowledgeable, super friendly and make you feel like part of the family. I especially adore the 70s soundtrack that seems to be playing each time I’ve eaten there! Radidi provides an extremely comfortable dining experience with fantastic ambience. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve found myself lingering over a meal, wishing the evening would never end.

Silvio’s Brazilian BBQ

20 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Cuisine: Brazilian BBQ

Brazilian BBQ has been all the rage for the past few years but it’s the Mississippi style ribs on the menu that keeps me coming back again and again.

Steak & Whiskey

117 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Cuisine: Modern Steakhouse

Blackhouse Hospitality and Chef Tin Vuong, the team behind Abigaile, Little Sister and Dia del Campo, have opened a steakhouse in downtown Hermosa. Steak & Whiskey features dry-aged prime meats and an extensive whisky collection. The intimate space feels old-world in the best possible way – think Paris, New York, London. They’ve foregone the noisy open kitchen and the music level is perfect for conversation. This is an elegant restaurant for people that appreciate great service, comfort and quality food and drinks. The beverage menu is well-curated and lists a few high end wines and whiskeys. The menu offers appetizers, salads and entrees but the main event is the meat. Ordered a la carte with a mouth-watering variety of side dishes, there are several cuts ranging in size from 8 to 24 ounces.

The Hook & Plow

425 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach CA, 90254
Cuisine: Farm to Table, Ocean to Plate

Located on upper Pier Avenue, The Hook & Plow has a kick-back, beach casual vibe – but don’t let the relaxed atmosphere fool you – they’re serious about sustainable, organic, locally-sourced food and serve up the freshest product available from seasonal menus. The inspired salads stand on their own, but diners have the option to add a protein to the mix – choose from the catch of the day, organic chicken, diver scallops, flat-iron steak or tofu. The colossal sandwiches can and should be shared. If you’re in the mood for an extraordinary cut of meat, don’t miss Tomahawk Thursdays. The menu is short and sweet and offers something for everyone, including vegans. The four partners are locals – there is always at least one of them on site – and they treat guests like family.

The Rockefeller

418 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Cuisine: Gastropub Fusion

The Rockefeller originally opened in Hermosa Beach and quickly thereafter established locations in Manhattan and Redondo. All three have become local’s favorites for a number of reasons – the laid back vibe, friendly service, casual-yet-stylish decor and fantastic food. The menu reflects the various influences on California cuisine with several Asian and Mexican dishes, in addition to the famous burgers and health conscience salads…. and yet, it all manages to feel like comfort food. If you don’t have time to sit and savor your morning coffee, they also offer grab-and-go menu items for breakfast that are very, very good. Of course, we would be remiss is we didn’t mention the aforementioned famous .99 cent Tuesday burger special!

Tower 12

3 Pier Ave
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
(310) 379-6400
Cuisine: California-inspired American classics

Located on busy Pier Avenue on a second story deck with interconnected rooms that overlook the ocean and pier, Tower 12 is the ultimate beachside spot for sunset sessions, après surf and always-welcome vibes. The upscale surf shack theme works because, well, actual surfers hang out there. The menu offers plenty of dishes perfect for sharing: meatballs, wings, charcuterie and pizza; a nice selection of salads and sandwiches; and half a dozen mouth-watering entrees. The impressive cocktail menu offers classics with a twist such as the Johnny Utah Margarita, Mai Mule and the Dawn Patrol Bloody Mary. Tower 12 is the perfect place to grab a bite and a beer after a day at the beach – it’s all board shorts and tank tops, sun-kissed skin and sandy feet.
