Looks like chef Brendan Collins is continuing to spread his wings, as the noted chef behind Birch in Hollywood is expanding into Hermosa Beach with a project called Tower 12.
The upcoming eatery is part sit-down restaurant, part full-on bar, and lands with some stunning second-story views of the water. In fact, there will be two bars as part of the series of rooms that make up the entire space, as well as a wooden wraparound outdoor dining area.
For food, expect a California-focused casual menu that includes everything from pizzas to sandwiches and salads. Craft beer is a must, with some 30 taps available, but there’s also room for wine and a full run of cocktails.
This isn’t the first time Collins has quietly gone about helping out with a few places beyond his home restaurant of Birch. Back in May of last year, he also opened a British pub space in Sawtelle Japantown called Butcher’s Dog. No official word on when Tower 12 will activate, but expect sometime in early 2017.
