Since Feb 2014, Hook & Plow restaurant with its “farm to table, ocean to plate” concept has become a community staple in Hermosa Beach. With their new location, the eatery brings the concept of highlighting organic and sustainable foods to Redondo Beach's Riviera Village.
Hook & Plow's locally sourced seafood, meats and produce is the cornerstone of their California cuisine, according to owners Brian and Bre Kelleher, who opened the original location with partners Lisa Cassity and Lauren Copelan.
“We have friends who have been moving to the Avenues and they all have kids same as us... a lot of them have said, 'Gosh, I wish you had one in Redondo Beach in the Village so we could walk to it.”
Bre said they had been searching for another location in the beach cities when the location at 1729 S. Catalina Ave. became available.
“Are you kidding me, this place is awesome,” Bre said was her reaction when she saw the location.
While the Hermosa Beach location at 425 Pier Ave. is 1,200 square feet, the Redondo Beach location is more than 2,640 square feet. Brian said everything doubled in size at the new location.
“We didn't know it was going to be this big, but when we saw it the bones of this place... too good to pass up,” said Brian about looking for a new location.
The menu featuring dishes from executive chef Matthew Ignacio was carried over from the Hermosa Beach location. Since then they have added several exclusive dishes to each menu.
“We want to see what the customers are really calling for down here,” Brian said.
The Redondo location features a large outdoor patio that seats close to 40 with a fire pit and also has a dog friendly area. The new location also has a children's corner with coloring books and other activities. The larger size location will allow them an opportunity to offer catering and larger parties.
Hook & Plow offers brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, as well as nightly specials including "Clambake Monday," "Chicken n' Waffle Wednesday" and "Tomahawk Thursday." Also, children eat free Wednesday nights.
