    it's pretty good. they make a solid steak frites and fried cauliflower. the menu is a bit outdated, as things in the south bay usually are, but everything is reasonably priced. it gets loud and the interior design could be more welcoming, though.

      outdated? as in the LA restaurant scene of 10 years ago. ??? i'll check it out, sounds like it might be a gastro-pub with later hours???

      Right. And it was delicious when we went last summer, we tried practically everything on the menu. She also owns the Tripel in PDR. Another winner, more beer-centric than HH.

        don't tell anyone about The Tripel.
        it is my neighborhood gastropub.
        good food.
        good beers, ales, and stouts.
        reasonable prices.
        nice people.
        crowded enough already.
        on my regular rotation.

            no wonder why you never mentioned this place. :)

              Heh, bulavinaka already let the cat out of the bag in the thread where I asked for recs near Centinela/Jefferson (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/852074), but due to time constraint, we ended up at Waterloo & City (my first time there, though my wife'd been, and we both loved it). Still, The Tripel is on our must-try list.

              Not to go too off-topic, but what would you recommend from there? The starters seem much more interesting than the sandwiches, but maybe that's just because the menu on their website doesn't go into much detail

                i've never had anything there that i DIDN'T like.
                the menu changes periodically, so don't be surprised if the website is not up to date.
                be aware that this is not primarily a restaurant, it is primarily a local gastropub.
                the servers provide gastropub service (i.e. no hovering, no "moving the table", etc.)
                all table seating is communal (2 tables in all).
                also, there is no parking lot associated with the place, no valet either.
                it is a small space, more often than not jammed packed with locals.

                the place is not a secret and expect it to be crowded.

                  The Tripel burger was delicious.

              yeah brooke and nick used to work in the db empire in ny, so their stuff is on point, but they're not ones to change the menu too much, just like a good local bar.

                there was a menu change at The Tripel within the last couple of months.
                all my favorites from the old one were kept.

                I love the food at HH but the noise level is defeaning. Excellent sweet potato fries.
