Turquoise Restaurant Review

: Colors of green, turquoise and cream emanate through the floor-to-ceiling windows of this small Mediterranean-inspired café in Redondo Beach’s Riviera Village. The glass exterior gives the dining room an open feeling, allowing the surrounding neighborhood to charm guests. The health-conscious menu is driven by the use of organic and natural ingredients in appetizers such as “mast-o-laboo,” a homemade yogurt stirred with roasted beets, which are surprisingly sweet. Slightly syrupy and chunky “torshe anbeh” is a mango chutney spiced with tamarind and dates. Skewers make up most of the larger plates, with options like marinated chicken breast, tofu and filet mignon; halibut is worth a try, as it’s topped with a rich cream sauce made with white wine and onions and served over cilantro-seasoned brown rice. At brunch, a polenta pizza is layered with feta cheese and mushrooms, while omelets incorporate Mediterranean spices like turmeric. The wine list is limited, with most options hailing from California.
