Heave a sigh of relief, as this Long Beach babe is a long way off from the touristy hustle and bustle. Courtesy of a brother and sister duo, the white stucco building with a red-tiled roof dons a compact yet charming interior—think neutral palette, lofty windows, and dark green doors. A tall counter and open kitchen is action central, while a snug alcove keeps things very inviting. By day it's a sandwich shop, but fine dining is the norm come nightfall—with a menu of contemporary, seasonal dishes. Fruit may be a common theme in such complex items as roasted beets with strawberries and fennel. Aged duck is then mingled with pluot slices, parsnip-vanilla purée, and sautéed chard. Save room for the pavlova, turned on its head with sweet corn and blueberries.
