Gabi James brings Spanish and coastal French food with California Soul to the South Bay. After 21 amazing years in Redondo Beach, Guy Gabriele along with his daughter Sara and her husband Adam bid farewell to Zazou with a dream of reinventing the space and concept. With the help of architect, Erik Blanchard and designer, Ana Henton, the new space began to take shape. Gabi James is a beautiful representation of Spanish and coastal French style, along with the bright and airy aesthetic that we hold dear in the South Bay.
Our kitchen is helmed by South Bay native and chef extraordinaire, Chris Feldmeier, of Mozza and Moruno fame, alongside longtime Gabriele restaurant veteran, Jorge Torres. The bar takes shape with an awesome trifecta. Vincenzo Marianella, of Copa d’Oro and Providence, has created a cocktail program that features house crafted juices and ingredients as well as a wide variety of spirits. Sara and Adam have curated a wine list and beer program that shines with local offerings as well as Spanish and French that pair great with the menu and stand tall on their own.
