You all know how much I enjoy discovering all the fabulous things there are to see and do here in the South Bay and checking out new restaurants is one of my favorite pastimes!
Earlier this week, my husband and I went to Dominique’s Kitchen for the inaugural Menage a Trois Monday. Dominique’s Kitchen now offers a Monday night happy hour with a special $3 menu. That’s right, from 4 to 6 p.m. you can indulge in a selection of appetizers, desserts, beer and wine for only $3 per plate or glass. At 4:15 on a Monday evening, we found ourselves seated in a cozy dining room in a comfortable banquette nibbling on deep fried kale dusted with Parmesan, French salami, Italian mortadella and a cheese board accompanied by steaming hot fresh rolls. There are several other items on the menu that you’ll want to check out ... escargot anyone? Dominique’s Kitchen is located at 522 S. Pacific Coast Hwy. in Redondo Beach. For more information, call 424-247-9054 or visit the website at dominiqueskitchen.com. We really enjoyed the happy hour and I’ll be sure to give you the lowdown as soon as we sample the dinner menu.
