Redondo Beach is going just a little bit Basque this week, thanks to Bernard Ibarra. The Terranea Resort chef will bring a full slate of pintxos and tapas to the boardwalk with a new concept called A Basq Kitchen, in what was previously the Russian-tilted beer spot Gambrinus.

The formerly dingy digs have been lightened up with a strong nautical theme and airy, open feel, which is a perfect fit for the waterside restaurant. The plan inside is to be a sort of Spanish wine bar by the beach, offering simple seasonal bites of things like patatas bravas, Spanish tortillas, and oysters, while larger plates will include a burger and seared lamb chops. Whites and reds come from vineyards across the European continent as well as coastal California.

A Basq Kitchen is currently soft-open, with hours Wednesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., before picking things up on the weekends to run noon to 10 p.m. There’s a big coming out party planned for this Friday, which includes unlimited beer, sangria, and food for around $30.
