A local hotel is taking its space to the next level.

The Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach, located at 3635 Fashion Way near the newly renovated Del Amo Fashion Center, has begun construction on its restaurant and lobby area. They will be completely converting the current Garden Court restaurant into a new one called 21 Square Kitchen and Bar. The inspiration of the name comes from the area of the city of Torrance, which is roughly 21 square miles, and the year it was incorporated, 1921.

They hope to bring a chic, coastal village environment to the hotel. The cuisine they will offer is being called “hand crafted coastal comfort” food. The new restaurant will be an indoor and outdoor restaurant with glass walls.

The general manager says Marriott wants to create an outdoor experience for locals, as well. They also plan to renovate the lobby and make it more inviting and open.

The restaurant and bar will open end of June. The hotel has been open for 31 years.
