Sausal is named after Rancho Sausal Redondo [Round Willow Ranch], the vast farmstead that once encompassed El Segundo and most of the South Bay. The name SAUSAL promises the experience of a deep multi-cultural palate reaching back before California was a part of the United States - back when the citizens of Spain and Mexico called her Alta California - and the coast was defined by large Ranchos. The name honors the memory of a fun loving, down-to-earth authenticity reaching back to when her residents enjoyed communal feasts and danced the fandango around an open fire under the stars.
Our Nuevo Rancho Cuisine pulls history forward by blending traditional Hispanic ingredients with contemporary farmers’ market fare. The menu borrows inspiration from the foundational elements of Rancho cooking: Wood Fire, Smoke, and Slow-Roasting; it celebrates the bold flavors of Mexican cuisine in combination with the elemental flavors of Spain - citrus, olives, figs - that were brought here by the missionaries; and just as importantly, it revels in contemporary bounty -- where fresh vegetables and produce are given a more prominent place at the table.
