Gabi James is a modern Spanish restaurant in Redondo Beach with a bright space, fantastic cocktails, and a menu that feels different. The oxtail ragu comes with sauteed penne that might remind you of eating a bowl of French fries (this is a good thing), and the tortilla Espanola is basically a giant piece of potato cake that we can’t stop thinking about. If you’re looking for a new date spot in the South Bay, Gabi James is an excellent option.
