THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Restaurant Christine Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Christine Brown has developed an enthusiastic following with her homey establishment on the edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Two levels are bathed in persimmon with green accents, offering linen-clad tables with a view of an open kitchen and reproductions of impressionist art. The scene is lively and inviting, and a latticed patio provides a touch of romance. Brown's Pacific Rim cooking has Mediterranean influences that are reflected in appetizers such as the Thai-glazed crawfish-and-avocado tower and an ahi caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes, caper popcorn, and a porcini-truffle vinaigrette. Entrées range from an Asian trio of orange-crusted scallops, miso short ribs and makrut lime shrimp, to a grilled thick-cut pork chop with sage cream sauce. Wines are limited but focused mostly toward California. A friendly staff contributes to a satisfying dining experience.
