21 Square Bar + Kitchen (Torrance, CA)

by @bstunoda

21 Square, named because the city is approximately 21 square miles, is the latest addition to the Torrance food and beverage landscape. It is located inside the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach. A lot of attention was placed on creating a cool coastal vibe. I liked the uniqueness of the interior decor - the walls featured the city of Torrance in a creative way. The venue extended outdoors with a beautiful fire pit and adjacent seating.

The “21st Mule” is their version of the ever popular cocktail with Tito’s® vodka, ginger beer and fresh squeezed lime. I enjoyed both the presentation and the taste of “El Dude”. This is their house-made creation of Fugu Horchata vodka and Kahlua.
In addition to the their cocktails, they feature wine and ten beers on tap. They’ve partnered with Absolution Brewing to create their own exclusive brew and that’s only available at 21 Square. It is a smooth ale and probably a great beginner’s entry into craft beer. In fact they make their delicious fish & chips using this very brew!
The LYB (Loosen Your Belt) is a shareable dish consisting of tater tots, capicola, mortadella, salami, sausage, cheddar, mozzarella, chopped scallions and topped with a poached egg. It’s is the perfect item to share with a draft beer.
Typically flatbread resembles pizza on the top, but 21 Square adds “tomato salad” to a base of pesto, fresh mozzarella, basil and chives. The tomatoes are chopped and placed on top of the flatbread after it leaves the oven.

The Madrona Burger will probably become their most popular item on the menu.
Not only is it expertly prepared, but it combines with quality ingredients like grass-fed beef, Grafton cheddar, pecanwood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion on a toasted potato bun.

Dessert should not be overlooked. Ice cream lovers must order the 21 Square Tornado Sundae. The chef rolls the ice cream table out to your table and uses liquid nitrogen to create the ice cream which is prepared fresh right in front of you. Roasted peanuts, salted caramel, nutella and bananas are stirred into the ice cream as the nitrogen is applied. It is a fun and foggy experience. The best part is that the ice cream is creamy and delicious!

Since 21 Square is right next to the Del Amo shopping plaza, it is a no-brainer to visit them for a drink or for dinner before a movie. Be sure to order the 21 Square Tornado Sundae!
