Mike Radke bought Maui Rose in Hermosa Beach about a little over a year ago, and serves up the finest Hawaiian fusion and Asian cuisine this side of the 405 freeway. Even though he has delicious food, a great location, and cooking skills, times are tough.

Next time you're in the South Bay, swing by 450 Pacific Coast Hwy in Hermosa Beach and tell him LAist sent you.
