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

Food is good and service is great. The place is beautifully decorated as well. The cocktails are great. But the prices are a little high.

Something fun to do for a special occasion. I thought $17 for a mixed drink was a bit expensive. The Shake shake beef was good but for $33 the meat should have been a bit more tender. Would I go there if it wasn’t a bday or anniversary, probably no.

Great little spot for lovers of Vietnamese food, especially if you're not afraid of cuisine.

I have dined at LSXO many times and always enjoy my experience. However, this time I was extremely disappointed in the service. There was nothing warm, hospitable or welcoming about the service. I am not so sure I will be back.

Wasn’t seated until 30mins past reservation time. Food also took nearly an hour to come out.

Food was outstanding everything from presentation to the overall taste. The cocktails were great too. The only negative would be the rap music was a little tiring after an hour.
