Located in the heart of Hermosa Beach, CA, just a few blocks from the historic Hermosa Pier and 20-mile-long paved path, The Strand, is an all-day eatery known as Serve on 2nd. Conceptualized by local restaurateur and 13-year professional beach volleyball player with The NVL, Jon Mesko, the restaurant was designed to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere with three distinctive, yet understated seating options to satisfy the diverse needs of the community.
“We were going for a true Hermosa Beach vibe in the space, so we channeled lots of blues and greens that would make people really feel like they were at the coast,” explained Abby Kuskin of Kuskin/May in Los Angeles, CA, who designed the 2,400-square-foot restaurant with her partner, Annie May. “We used the Arto Roman Pavers in ‘Early Gray,’ ‘Natural Gray’ and ‘Ocean Green Light.’ The ‘Ocean Green Light’ was perfect because it still felt really neutral and not too overwhelming. The Hermosa community is lively and fun, and we felt like this color scheme was a perfect representation of their lifestyle.”
