Who Song & Larry’s Cal Mex Cantina will soon open at 100-H Fisherman’s Wharf in Redondo Beach, according to the Xperience Restaurant Group website.
XRG is responsible for 11 branded concepts with locations all across the United States, including El Torito, Chevy’s Fresh Mex, and SOL Mexican Cantina.
Cal Mex will open just next door to another emerging concept called Mermaid Tavern (suites I & J), helmed by Liviu Barna who, in April, explained that Mermaid Tavern would occupy two former nightclubs — one of which is the famed Harvelle’s — and was under construction.
The XRG website describes Cal Mex as such: “A Modern Mexican-Influenced Cantina, inspired by the warm Southern Coasts of Sonora, Mexico, and Southern California. Founded in 2023 in Redondo Beach, Cal Mex Cantina is the Original Mextropub. A one-of-a-kind destination on the Redondo Beach Pier, serving the best tapas, tacos & margaritas in town.”
CFO Ned Algeo did not respond to WNLA‘s request for comment regarding an opening date.
