Abigaile dishes out a creative, globally inspired and market-driven menu in Hermosa Beach. An on-premise brewery crafts intriguing Southern California microbrews. Housed in an abandoned Baptist church that served as a music venue for punk bands, the space retains some of the most defining details of its former use, such as soaring ceilings and graffitied walls.

Little Sister's menu showcases Chef Tin Vuong's take on one of the more interesting and rich collisions of food and culture that was borne out of the European colonization of Southeast Asia. Dishes blend, and balance the spices and flavors of Southeast Asia with French techniques and Dutch and British colonial influences.
