Dominique’s: Best of the Beach 2018 French/Continental

Chef Dominique Theval is the South Bay’s French treasure, a renowned culinarian who cooked in France and Asia before settling in Redondo. Nobody would have been surprised if someone with his resume had turned out ultra-fancy and fussy dinners with stratospheric price tags. Instead, he has championed country French ideas with Californian and Italian accents, and the prices are moderate. Most main courses on his menu are less than twenty-five bucks, which is amazingly moderate for this level of cooking. Dominique’s is the place locals go when they decide they deserve to treat themselves and those they love, and our area is better for it.
