You know that bar on the corner that serves up tasty microbrews, seasonal wines and an array of pub food that blends sophistication and comfort? Well, all neighborhoods should be equipped with such an establishment and it so happens that nestled in the heart of Redondo Beach’s Riviera Village there is such a place. The Bouzy [boo-zee] Gastropub pairs French, American, and Asian food fare with an ever-changing assortment of off-brand, organic cocktails, microbrews, and wines that culminate in an authentic, local pub experience brought to you by the owners of Chez Melange.
The Bouzy Gastropub took shape when Chez Melange moved out of the Palos Verdes Inn on Pacific Coast Highway and into to its current location on 1611 South Catalina Avenue over three years ago. The entrance to Bouzy sits right in front of Chez Melange. The atmosphere here has a relaxed, smoky-wooded décor with comfortable bar stools, tables, booths and an attentive staff ready to serve you. The Menu is long and two-sided, one side for libations and the other for food, so you may need a second to digest all Bouzy has to offer.
The menu is never the same and is consistently refreshed with new & seasonal snacks, burgers, sandwiches, and beverages, pre-dominantly of the alcoholic sort. You can share a plate of chicken liver or hand-cut french fries with truffles and a pint of Old Speckled Hen, one of England’s finest craft beers. If you’re in the mood for a lager, try Iron City Beer in a bottle or sip on a locally brewed pale ale from The Strand Brewing Co., you might even get to drink a beer that’s been brewed in bourbon soaked barrels. The real treat though comes in burger form at Bouzy.
The Chez Burger and the Pancho Burger are hands down some of the tastiest burgers in the South Bay. You might need a knife and fork to tackle these miraculous creations as their stacked high and the Pancho Burger comes with a chile relleno. Head on down to Bouzy soon and experience your local, neighborhood Gastropub.
