Since 1979, the restaurant has served Mexican-inspired cuisine and some of the best views in the city. Chef Abe started at the institution about five months ago, and says the staff is working hard on evolving the restaurant for 2013. With a background that includes Studio at Montage Laguna Beach and Aqua, formerly at The St. Regis Monarch Beach, Abe is excited for what’s to come, and helping more clearly define Las Brisas’ identity. One thing that won’t change, he mentions, is the view: “You just can’t beat that.” Even if you’re a local, the colors and tastes of the margaritas will make you feel like you’re on vacation.

The open kitchen complete with front row seats at the chef’s table provides a live show of dinner in the making. The industrial design with a high ceiling creates an open feeling, inviting everyone to one big party. “I basically want to create a comfortable atmosphere,” Amar says. Locals have welcomed Broadway, making for a loyal base of customers. “We have a lot of repeat customers, them to have the so we don’t want same thing all the time,” he explains. His new restaurant venture allows him to change the menu every couple of weeks, which wasn’t such an easy task when he […]
