The Rex Seaside Steakhouse presents to our guests a culinary experience highlighting Redondo Beach’s best feature: its community!
Our mission is quite simple: offer our local residents the joy of fine dining, close by, without all the fuss. It is our genuine intention to offer exceptional service in a cozy gathering space for you to visit — almost like a second home — and create special memories for years to come.
We believe every great meal is founded upon great ingredients. Item selections are guided on one principle: to source exceptional products that reflect our local markets and seasonality. We choose to honor the important work of our farmers, fishermen, and butchers by showcasing their products as they were meant to be tasted, delivering so much more than just a dish, but an unparalleled gastronomic experience.
Led by Executive Chef Walter Nunez, our team will strive to bring to you — our neighbors — what we feel our community deserves: beautiful ‘turf-to-the-surf’ dishes, thoughtfully crafted cocktails, and exceptional wine parings chosen specifically to heighten and savor each and every bite.
We cannot wait to welcome you to The Rex!
Walter Nunez serves as Executive Chef of The Rex, bringing more than 10 years of culinary experience and a lifetime of curiosity to the role. Chef Nunez leads a kitchen and menu that defines the spirit of our seaside steakhouse in an atmosphere of casual elegance.
Chef Nunez joins The Rex family following a tenure with Chef Michael Hung at Faith and Flower, one of downtown Los Angeles’s premier restaurants. Chef Nunez brought forth a distinct vision for his team and menu that is unparalleled, and is sure to carry on that standard in Redondo Beach.
A Los Angeles native, Chef Nunez has a sizeable pedigree in the California culinary world. He credits much of his success to his time in the kitchen of San Francisco’s award-winning Jardinière.
