How Herringbone Got its Name
August 23, 2020
A classic Tao Group Hospitality restaurant, Herringbone’s name is as special as the restaurant itself.
Herringbone is a farm-to-table, ocean-to-table getaway, featuring fresh seafood, meats and farm-grown vegetables. We source locally as much as possible at all our Herringbone locations. This same fresh and natural principle is carried into the restaurant’s interiors. Real olive trees can be found inside the original flagship location in downtown La Jolla, California, its towering branches decorated with lights that create a truly beautiful setting at night. Mimosas on the weekends and Oyster Hour specials create a setting that invites our guests to celebrate in our unique Herringbone aesthetic.
Herringbone has two different locations: Santa Monica and Waikiki. Each location carries on the trend of fresh, local ingredients and a design that celebrates the beauty of each of their unique locations. For example, in Waikiki, Herringbone’s prime seating can be found on the Lanai, our patio area that allows our guests to enjoy a covered view of Hawaii’s International Market Place. In La Jolla, the small coastal restaurants are anchored right near the ocean.
So, now that you know a little more about our restaurant, we can explain the meaning behind the name.
Herringbone is a part of our social dining restaurant collection. Through the unique, farm-to-table atmosphere that merges the beauty of the outdoors into our restaurants, we aim to “weave” the perfect social setting into every “fabric” of who we are. Thus, the concept of Herringbone was born. It’s the “fabric of social dining”; the makeup of a perfect venue space that invites you to come hungry, stay late, and enjoy special moments with those you love most.
Whether, for lunch, dinner, or a weekend brunch, our locations in La Jolla and Waikiki have something to offer you for your next social experience. To learn more about each of our locations, visit our homepage for Herringbone.
