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

    Had a beautiful experience at LSXO to celebrate my birthday. Our table was spacious and comfortably accommodating for a party of three and a whole lot of food. And, the food, was incredible. Every dish was more brilliant than the last. Not a scrap was left, we loved every single bite! Highly recommend sharing the lobster fried rice, pho bhan cuon, and salmon crudo. The seabass was delicious, and so was the special birthday dessert that was gifted at the end. The tequila cocktail was our favorite, can’t remember the name unfortunately. I will absolutely dine here again. The menu has a lot to offer, I can’t wait to try more of their dishes and immerse in the cool atmosphere they have created here. Excellent restaurant and experience. Thank you LSXO!

    Excellent drinks, food & service in small private-feeling room within Bluegold. That said, if you can't get a table and are seated at the 4 bar seats, it was a less comfortable experience than I'd hoped. The stools are a bit high for the counter (but maybe that's just me.) Next time I'll know to specify 'table only' because, for me, a leisurely dinner can't be leisurely on a stool. We ordered the pork, shrimp & crab dumplings which were beautifully balanced and the spicing didn't cover the delicate seafood. The same balance was present in the octopus salad that was herbaceous with perfectly cooked baby octopus. We also had the 'bo ne' which was a deconstructed bahn mi. The prime steak was a beautiful medium rare with a fried egg atop. Grilled onitons, pate butter sauce and a large baguette allowed you to assemble your own bahn mi or eat the parts individually. A great meal. I'd be back, but I live closer to Little Sister, which has a similar menu (and the same owners) and I've sat at their bar and it's a lot more comfortable! Shout out to the LSXO staff for a lovely evening and great service. Thank you!

    When we arrived, we were greeted by the hostess and Jeremy. Although our table wasn’t quite ready, they both let us know in professional and heartfelt manner. Upon arriving at our table we immediately felt the warm and soothing ambiance. Our servers were amazing and attentive! The food was completely delicious. We tried several different dishes and everyone was unique in both presentation and taste. We’ll definitely be back soon!!!

    Such a cool spot to go to. The food is amazing. The restaurant is so cool and the view is incredible. It truly feels like you’re in on a secret. Worth the wait. ALSO, the choice of music playing makes the experience that’s already a 10 a 15! Rocking out to hip hop jams and eating bomb food was a win for me. And if the music isn’t your thing then direct your attention to your company. Just saying.

    We dined at LSXO for the first time to celebrate a birthday. One daughter is a frequent diner and recommended it. We were not disappointed. We started with signature drinks, dumplings, and imperial rolls. We shared the glazed shrimp and pork rib and the shaky beef dishes. Not a grain of rice was left on the plate. We capped it with gelato and cake. We had impeccable service, great food, and left knowing we are coming back. It's on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.

    I was greeted 15 min after being sat. I ordered a glass of wine and app and was left at the table for 30min before my waiter came back. I ordered and waited another 20 min only to be told what I ordered was no longer avail. I re ordered and the new item was not avail either. The waiter failed in every way.

    2 hr time limit was a MAJOR buzz kill. We went on a Thursday 4:30pm and had dinner, then we ordered dessert….our server came back to the table to tell us they could box the dessert and send it with us to go since our 2 hrs were up. Or we could cancel it. There were two other open tables near us and it was not a weekend. We felt rushed out as we were still ordering! Needles to say we will not be going back. Bluegold is a much better choice/experience.

    Cuisine was very good, jade cocktail delicious, butterfly effect drink was not. Furniture is not nice and very worn. Lighting helps this place look more special. The Lobster was 165 for 2lbs but I’m confident it was not close to 2 lbs of meat. An interesting experience but will not be going back.
