Summary

Angelika Corrente and husband Stan Mayzalis opened their Eastern European “home” to the public in the summer of 2013. Doma Kitchen resides along a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway that’s set back from the water in Redondo Beach. Chef Kristina Miksyte specializes in “glocal” cuisine. Yes, that’s Globally inspired food featuring local, seasonal ingredients. The patio-driven restaurant features a fairly familiar selection of sandwiches and salads. What sets Doma apart from other restaurants is their selection of lamb dishes, which factors into sandwiches, crepes, salads, and you’re-lucky-if-they-have-it lagman noodles. They also fill a counter with house-baked pastries, another important differentiator along PCH.

The Scene

An inviting wood-paneled patio greets diners at this unassuming South Bay café. Order at the counter, facing an open kitchen and sheets of tantalizing pastries, grab a big 3D number, and retreat to the patio. The spacious outdoor dining area features shaded communal wood tables, a living wall, and murals that qualify as both complete and DIY.
