SMASH BURGER 1024 312 tonyabbott88


I recently had the privilege of a lunch date with my daughter. She loves hamburgers. I thought I would take the opportunity to try a new burger spot. We decided to try Smash Burger in Redondo Beach, CA.

My daughter loved her Smash Burger!

I have heard for years they have great burgers. They use fresh angus meat SMASHED with their own seasoning on a artisan bun. The restaurant had just opened when we got there. It was clean and the counter man Xavier was very friendly. We told him it was our first time there and needed to look at the menu. He gladly introduced us to the menu and explained our choices. My daughter ordered the kids meal, with the added bonus of a chocolate shake. Their shakes are hand spun with Haagen-Dazs ice cream.

I ordered the Double Avocado Bacon Burger with sliced avocado, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, ranch, mayo, toasted multi-grain bun. I was so hungry, I ate it before I could take a picture of it. I asked Xavier if I could take a picture of the next burger that came out just to show you.

I should have ordered the Smoked Bacon Brisket Burger with smoked aged cheddar cheese, brisket, applewood smoked bacon, pickles, bbq sauce on a toasted brioche bun. That just looked awesome! We definitely left satisfied.

Torrance, CA. Brio restaurant closes at Del Amo Fashion Center

Brio Coastal Bar & Kitchen, one of several new upscale restaurants that opened after the $300 million renovation of Torrance Del Amo Fashion Center, has permanently shuttered its location in the high-end fashion wing near Nordstrom, along Hawthorne Boulevard.

“Dear valued guests,” a sign on the restaurant’s door reads, “we have made the difficult decision to close this restaurant.

“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you through the years,” it added.

The restaurant’s parent company, part of a chain of Mediterranean eateries based in Florida, did not respond to a request for comment.

The restaurant was one of several, including trendy Din Tai Fung and Mexican eatery Frida, that opened in the wake of the mall’s 2015 make-over, creating a new high-end restaurant row that has seen mixed success.
