Southeast Asian
Behind an unmarked door adjacent to the wine room, guests are transported to District 1 (China Town) in Saigon via Blackhouse’s 28-seat restaurant-within-a-restaurant, LSXO. A spinoff of the Little Sister brand (Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach & Downtown Los Angeles), LSXO is love letter to the culture, heritage, and lineage of Vietnam (Vuong’s relatives hail from the region). While Little Sister is known for its French Vietnamese menu, LSXO follows the same Southeast Asian inspiration with a more refined feel.

“There is no signage for LSXO—you can spot the entrance of it tucked into a section inside Bluegold, but you’ll have to know it’s there. While Bluegold is light, bright, and airy, LSXO is its darker, edgier little sister,” says Vuong. “Both restaurants operate out of the same kitchen, though the menus are completely different. LSXO offers straight-up, honest, home-style Vietnamese cuisine—the type of food I grew up eating with my grandparents in the San Gabriel Valley

    The food was amazing, servers were very nice, but the service was not on the same level as the pricey dishes or ambiance of the place.

    This was our third time at LSXO, and it never disappoints! The food is always amazing, and the atmosphere and music are part of what makes this restaurant a hidden gem. My favorites are the salmon crudo, the spring rolls, sea bass, and the Shaky Shaky beef, but I doubt you’ll go wrong with anything you order.

    Beautiful intimate setting server was helpful in menu selection but we were reminded of the 2 hr dining maximum which hurried things along. The portion size in the share plates was generous to the point that the table couldn’t accommodate the dishes and our plates. Because of the varied flavors and composition of our selections we had to request plate changes frequently which I had hoped would have been automatically suggested. Cocktails were good and different from traditional offerings. Spring rolls superb as were the seared prawns with beef. Exceptional flavors. The noodle broth with fish balls was mundane and a let down after the previous mentioned items. The atmosphere of this little “speakeasy” was very cool but the rap music didn’t match the ambiance of the cuisine or venue and was way too loud to Allie normal conversation. Clientele was quiet and not overly loud but the music dominated. My husband received a complimentary birthday dessert and fortunately they didn’t sing

    We have eaten here multiple times and have always had a great experience. Food is outstanding and the ambiance puts it over the top. Small and intimate but a great attention to detail. Ocean view, comfortable seating areas and a 1-2 person service staff who are top-notch. Once you have dined here you will come back again and again.

    This is the 2nd time we have eaten there, and we were not disappointed! We ordered 5 different dishes, all of which were unique and flavorful! The waitress did a great job recommending new items to try! If we had to pick the Sea Bass was probably our favorite! The ambiance was festive and it was decorated beautifully for Xmas, it was a special evening!

    Chairs need to be updated, some sit to low due to no cushion or very little cushion. Also carpets easy to fall. Let me know when you update chairs & i will return.

    Love the small location and view of HB. Food is always good. This time had the imperial rolls. Good but Would have liked them a bit smaller too hard to wrap and eat. Eggplant was excellent. Look forward to exploring more of the menu on future visits

    The food was quite delicious, the service was very good, and the view was wonderful! The space is cool, and while it was clean, the large carpet on the floor could use a deep clean and it kept bunching up causing folks to trip a bit while getting to and from their tables. I also suggest getting semi-opaque blinds that go from top-to-bottom. We were here for lunch and everyone with the view was blinded by the sun. The table next to us wore sunglasses while eating their meal. The only curtain to close was a thick left-to-right which would have blacked out the restaurant. Regardless, I’d come back. Food is really good. They also asked about and did well at accommodating our dietary restrictions!

    The ambiance feels like a speakeasy in Saigon. But you also get a view of the Pacific Ocean as a bonus! We had a special anniversary lunch here. Complimentary champagne/dessert was very much appreciated for our special occasion. I highly recommend this little hideaway. It’s great for a romantic date, with cool cocktails and scrumptious Vietnamese/French dishes, served up graciously in a cozy in-the-know restaurant within a restaurant.
