Chef Tin Vuong and partner Jed Sanford of Blackhouse Hospitality have been on quite an expansion kick, taking over not just the South Bay with their recent Steak & Whisky opening, but also expanding Downtown with the second outlet of Little Sister. Well now the duo are returning to the heart of their empire with their seventh restaurant opening, Suburbia in Redondo Beach.
Opened just last week in Redondo Beach's quaint Riviera Village, it's a highly personal project for the restaurateurs. Fans of Blackhouse restaurants (Abigaile, Dia de Campo, Wildcraft) will notice some of their favorite dishes from the portfolio of eateries. That means the progressive, New American menu features everything from Abigaile's pao de queijo to a spin on Little Sister's popular salt and pepper lobster. Filling in the gaps are a selection of dishes that range from pan-Asian to Mexican, and just about everything in between.
This ode to other Blackhouse restaurants is no accident, as Sanford wanted to create place he could eat his favorite dishes with his children on a regular basis. That makes it exactly the kind of chef-driven, approachable eatery everyone wishes would enter their 'hood.
Suburbia is open daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
