The Tripel, Playa del Rey, CA

The Tripel Restaurant Review

: After setting up shop in Redondo Beach, Brooke Williamson and Nick Roberts follow up their success at Hudson House with a gastropub in Playa del Rey. With forty-seven seats, the venue is nearly half the size of their other concept, but the menu itself has expanded in range and originality. Items like red curry coconut biscuits and white bean bruschetta with braised fennel and marinated anchovies offer a twist to the appetizer section. The sandwiches are a major component of the menu, with options like a lamb burger, calamari po’ boy or the best of the bunch, the signature Tripel burger: a blend of duck confit, pork and aged beef on an onion brioche bun with truffle pecorino, arugula and apricot jam. Some of the sides still need work, like the overly salted lobster pee-wee potatoes and the too-dry poppy slaw. A vast selection of artisanal brews and wines is available, all handpicked to accommodate the highly sodium-rich food. Service is very friendly, though due to the small size of the room and hard surfaces, the restaurant fills quickly and it can be difficult to hear.
