It's impossible not to notice the blooming food scene in Redondo Beach. While classic American dining and fresh seafood have always been culinary staples, over the past few years we have had our dining experience revamped by new restauranteurs that are on the forefront of the modern, eclectic palate. Thrillist has now put together their "Most Essential Restaurants" for foodies visiting Redondo Beach....
When Thrillist lays out a dining guide, you know that only the most exciting restaurants are going to make the cut, and not surprisingly, many of our favorite restaurants were high on the list. Some highlights include:
A Basq Kitchen
As one of the only Basq restaurants in Los Angeles, A Basq Kitchen stands out in Redondo Beach and along the International Boardwalk - well into its own Renaissance period. Rated "Best Shares", it's sure to capture your attention with its atmosphere which pays tribute to the "fantastic little pintxo bars you find in San Sebastian" and its "spread of Basque flavor bombs"
You'll remember this "Best Date Night" spot from our Italian Dining Guide to Redondo Beach. Located in the Riviera Village, this authentic Italian restaurant has an "interior looks like a set from a romcom, and the food comes from Michelin star awarded Chef Fabio Ugoletti"
Polly's on the Pier
Not every spot in Thrillist's essentials is brand new, places like Polly's on the Pier have been highly recommended staples of the Redondo Beach dining scene for so long it's hard to image the city without them. Rated "Best Brunch", you know exactly what to expect and "it’s kind of wonderful to get exactly what you’re looking for. " Also, the location is "unbeatable"

Orlando's Pizzeria & Birreria
In a city with several amazing pizza spots, winning "Best Pizza" is a coveted honor. One glance at the menu and their instagram feed is sure to confirm that "it’s not just the slice that put this place on the map (anywhere with poutine this delicious is doing something right)", but if you are looking for a pizza experience that offers much more than a pie - this is a must try.
