The Rockefeller in Hermosa Beach is a gastropub with great food and even friendlier service. Their happy hour is noteworthy, in that they've got drinks, oysters, and even $.99 cent hamburgers!?! I would totally go back just for that. But now on to the food...
Ahi Tuna tostadas...I was debating between getting this and the Ahi Tuna Tacos. Kinda wish I got both. The tostadas were tasty, creamy, and had a generous serving of ahi tuna on each bite.
The snapper ceviche was really interesting because it had this sweet and spicy mango sauce, and a generous helping of fish with a side of corn tortilla chips. I think this is a pretty good appetizer to share.
We got an order of their Short Rib tacos. My husband loved these. I liked them too, but I prefer a more saucier, almost like a saucy braised type stew while he likes it less saucy and more meat. It was delicious nonetheless, just a difference in opinion.
Their Chermoula Seabass was done very well and a good option if you want to go with something healthy. The mediterranean was made with char braised fennel and wild pico rice, red-vin glaze, and freso chile.
Oh, but their Truffle mac and cheese...perfect on its own or as a side dish to practically any one of their entrees. If you like mac and cheese and are often disappointed with what is out there, you won't be disappointed with this one. I thought it was really flavorful, I could taste the truffle, I could taste the bacon, and the taleggio and parmesan cheese. WINNING!
They carry locally brewed beers and we had a good time trying them. They even had a sour, my favorite! Their happy hour is Monday thru Friday from 5pm to 7pm. The food and drinks are TOTALLY worth checking out.
What an amazing feast we had! I only wish I lived closer so I could check out their happy hour too!
