Torrance is the unofficial foodie capital of the South Bay! And with an average temperature of 72 degrees year-round, it’s the perfect destination for al fresco dining fans all year-round. This summer, to ensure the health and safety of visitors and locals alike, the City of Torrance is taking the al fresco experience to the next level with a new Downtown Torrance Outdoor Dining Pilot Program.
Starting July 10, quaint Old Torrance will turn into al fresco paradise with street closures to create a pedestrian area reserved for outdoor dining. To start, Sartori Avenue will be closed to traffic from East of El Prado to Marcelina avenues with dining setups allowing for safe physical distancing.
Grab a bite from these must-try local favorites to enjoy in the open air:
There will also be a communal area set up on Sartori Avenue where you can bring a take-out meal (or two) from other restaurants nearby and outside the zone to enjoy the downtown area.
The program will run the first three weekends of the month through September.
