Clutch Restaurant Review

: Clutch, a Cali-Mex barbecue restaurant in Venice, is a project from restaurateur Oscar Hermosillo (Venice Beach Wines, Cerveteca). Local designers Landlocd Design pay homage to the motor using d├ęcor elements like car exhaust tubing and train track tie bolts. Bringing a SoCal influence to his Mexican and Baja California roots, Hermosillo crafted the menu with his mother and chef Nikolai Trigueros (Blue Plate Taco) to offer more local produce and seafood. Featured dishes include periwinkles with salsa verde, Santa Maria tri tip, smoked duck, carne asada and different kinds of fish cooked over a wood-burning grill. Beer and wine are served.
