Barsha highlights fresh California produce with a Tunisian and Mediterranean flair
This South Bay restaurant is not just one of the few restaurants in the area focusing on North African cuisine, but Barsha also has a great wine list. It rotates monthly and focuses on small production wines. There are always some natural wine options on the list, including their own Barsha orange wines, made in Tuscany. In addition to the restaurant, Barsha also runs a wine shop and tasting room in Manhattan Beach.
Okay first things first: Barsha’s Manhattan Beach location is a casual bottle shop where you can order a wine tasting flight and nibble on Tunisian apps, while Barsha’s Hermosa Beach location is a full-service restaurant with a similarly abundant wine list and a menu that gives special attention to Tunisian and Mediterranean flavors, like Lamb Meatballs nestled in a M’hamsa stew and Tabil Branzino perched over a couscous risotto with chimichurri sauce. The HB location offers a selection of draft and off-tap beers, white and red wines by the glass, plus a craft cocktail list. The Manhattan Beach shop also carries Tunisian knit sweaters and handcrafted dishware, in addition to an international wine and spirits selection.
