Inside Hermosa Beach’s Glossy New Dinner Spot Decadence

Steps from the beach, and dripping with velvet, gold, and glass

Sleepy South Bay city Hermosa Beach gets a splashy new dinnertime entrant tonight called, of all things, Decadence. And as the name implies, there’s a lot of gloss, glass, and purple tufting.

Decadence comes by way of Skylar Tourigny and chef Huy Nguyen, who has worked under Michael Hung’s Ardour Hospitality and at Faith & Flower in Downtown. Tourigny previously operated Marine Street Cafe in Manhattan Beach, and has been working to open Decadence since 2017. She designed the space, a tight concoction of bar stools, booth seating, four-tops, and lounge areas, herself.

As for the menu, Nguyen is going for a pan-California vibe with dishes that range from roasted chicken with a ginger-thyme glaze to breezy French basics like seared diver scallops or a braised bacon and frisee salad. And this being the laid-back beach, expect options like avocado tempura with kewpie mayo and a burger with smoked cheddar cheese. There’s also a full bar inside the Hermosa Avenue space, as well as plenty of bottles of wine and craft beer.

Decadence opens tonight, keeping hours from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for dinner, with drinks going until midnight at the bar. Lunch hours run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday through Sunday.

Decadence. 1332 Hermosa Ave., Hermosa Beach, CA.
