Long Beach

BO-beau kitchen + Roof Tap (Fine Dining)
144 Pine Ave, Long Beach, CA

Playing host to “quite the scene”, this “great-looking” branch of a San Diego mini-chain is set in a sprawling former nightclub in Downtown Long Beach with a “unique” rooftop beer garden and a swankier dining room downstairs; the “intriguing” French-accented gastropub fare prepared by “chitchatting” chefs is washed down with varied craft beers and “yummy” cocktails – all of which leads to a “nice”, “eclectic” evening out.

Sprawling, bi-level gastropub for bar fare & beer boasts a formal dining space & rooftop patio.

Johnny Rebs’ True South Long Beach
4663 Long Beach Blvd, Long Beach, CA

Johnny Reb’s is one of those restaurants you never forget – a true southern cuisine experience on the California coast. It’s the creation of Cheryl and Larry Cotter who met in California and wanted to put down roots in the state, but dearly missed the South. They missed the barbecue, the desserts, and most of all – the hospitality of southern residents.

After much deliberation, they made plans to open their own Southern barbecue restaurant in California. To prepare, Cheryl went back to the South, starting in North Carolina, and spent a year getting into every restaurant she could. She learned the ins and outs of restaurants, smoked meat, and baked up to 1500 biscuits a day to perfect her recipes.

Southern comfort cuisine, including BBQ meats, biscuits & fried chicken, in a rustic atmosphere.

Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles (Long Beach)
730 E Broadway, Long Beach, CA

“Tender, succulent, crispy, crunchy, perfectly salted morsels” of fried chicken and “light, fluffy”, “buttery” waffles “just go together” at this “deservedly famous” “old-school soul-food” chain that’s inspired a comfort-food “cult following”; service is “helpful” if “a little slow”, so most just settle into the “nondescript” digs, savor a “sweet cup of sunset” (the signature lemonade) and enjoy the “laid-back” vibe; P.S. “weekdays are the best” bet to avoid “long lines.”

Sal’s Gumbo Shack
6148 Long Beach Blvd W, Long Beach, CA

Opened in 2012, Sal’s Gumbo Shack channels your mom’s cooking straight from the kitchen—you know, if your mom was really, really good at making Louisiana fare. Regulars here rave about the gumbo, a hearty broth filled with chicken, sausages, shrimp and crab legs over rice, as well as the addictive jambalaya and hefty po’boys. End your meal with a slice of peach cobbler and you’re golden.

Unfussy hangout for gumbo, po’ boys & other Louisiana eats in kitschy digs with patio tables.

Tantalum (Fine Dining)
6272 E Pacific Coast Hwy # J, Long Beach, CA

Nestled within the Marina Pacifica is Tantalum, an Asian-fusion restaurant that maintains a refreshingly intimate feel in a large space. Though the restaurant is tiered, with tables placed at various elevations, the best seat in the house is at the 75-foot-long mahogany bar. Indulge in a Tahitian Moon, a fruity, vodka-fueled concoction, as you watch the sun slowly melt into the marina. Tantalum carries dozens of red and white wines, as well as a variety of beers and sake. While there is a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights, it seems only those with a bit of liquid courage dance the night away.

The Sky Room (Fine Dining)
40 S Locust Ave, Long Beach, CA

The eye-catching Art Deco design of this historical Long Beach landmark is reason enough to venture out of Los Angeles. Top that with live jazz, dancing and stunning waterfront views – including one of the luxury liner, the Queen Mary – and you have the makings of an unbeatable romantic evening. Pepper-crusted ahi, lobster tails, Kobe filet mignon and a treasure-packed paella are menu standouts.
