For this week’s cement tile Tuesday spotlight, we turn our attention to Hermosa Beach, California, a spot for surfers, sun and now Steak & Whisky, brought to you by Chef/Partner Tin Vuong and executive chef John Shaw.
American fare, exposed brick, barn wood and our Toscano cement tiles equal a great new steakhouse in Hermosa Beach. Located at 117 Pier Avenue (make reservations through Open Table here), this classic meat-centric spot has a 1920s vibe that’s underlined by the vintage style of Toscano concrete tiles. Toscano encaustic tiles cool palette of greys, black, white and blue, lightens the space’s rich leather seating, reddish brick walls and Douglas Fir wood beams and balances their warmth, helping to bring an unexpected modern and industrial twist and taking it beyond just another steakhouse into something new.
Custom-colored in shades of grey and black, with a white background and a silver stripe punctuated with pops of sky, Toscano mixes both exotic elements and familiar graphics for a restaurant floor tile that’s modern and timeless.
