ZIMZALA, 500 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, California
Photographer Ray Kachatorian, Stylist Jennifer Flanagan


What we love about Zimzala: The name, for starters. Riptionary, an online surf lexicon, defines zimzala as a “free-spirited person who finds peace with sand between his toes.” That’s also the vibe inside the Surf City, U.S.A., hangout with an open kitchen and a chic bar where mixologists concoct new twists on classic cocktails, like the Heirloom (tomato) Bloody Mary. On the menu, coastal Mediterranean dishes like spicy Portuguese crab cakes and made-for-sharing mezzes (small plates) are prepared right in front of diners. Our favorite accessory: the saffron and turquoise mini-tagine-pots-turned-salt-and-pepper-cellars on every table.
