Eureka! Tasting Kitchen, Hawthorne, CA

Eureka! Tasting Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Jet Center Los Angeles, the fixed-base operator at the Hawthorne Municipal Airport, is home to a branch (and the headquarters) of this ever-expanding gourmet burger chain. As the name Eureka! Tasting Kitchen implies, it's also where co-owner/executive chef Ron Guidone (Mangiamo Ristorante & Bar, Talia's) tests out new recipes. Take a seat at the bar or one of the tables overlooking the airport runway. The juicy and flavorful burgers are made with all-natural beef and interesting toppings like homemade fig marmalade. Meanwhile, you'll also find more sophisticated fare like steamed Puget Sound clams, kale salad and pan-seared salmon. Also unique to this site is a breakfast menu (served until noon). For dessert, consider all-American items like butterscotch pudding. There is a well-developed craft beer program, including rotating taps of local brews specially chosen for this location, plus a significant whiskey selection and a brief roster of California wines. Eureka! Tasting Kitchen presents a casual, friendly atmosphere and a good value, particularly during happy hour from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. Other locations throughout California.
