Malibu Farm’s new restaurant has recently opened at the beginning of the Malibu Pier.
When a business succeeds in Malibu it means something. Not a lot of restaurants make it passed the 1-2 year mark here. It’s almost a constant rotation of calling the newcomer the “new what-ever-the-last-restaurant-was-named”. Malibu Farm has challenged this norm and prospered. It is frequented by locals and out-of-towners, is a repeat member of “top something lists” featured on sights like eater, and has a celebrity following.
In the two years it has been open, Malibu Farm has gone from being a hip, popup restaurant to a neighborhood staple. And now, it has achieved a full takeover of the ever-changing Malibu Pier. Malibu Farm has expanded to bring Helene Henderson’s farm to table concept (seriously–she brings eggs and vegetables from her own backyard farm) to both ends of the pier. The original Malibu Farm Pier Café will remain as the counter service location at the end of the pier.
The new addition is taking over the space formerly home to the Malibu Pier Restaurant. The new, full-service restaurant at the beginning of the pier will take on the name the Malibu Farm Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant adds a full bar and specialty cocktails as well as green juices, smoothies, shakes, espresso and a new menu!
We went for an after-work snack and tried Malibu Farm’s twist on a paella and a watermelon cocktail. Another home run for Henderson! We are excited to see how this next adventure treats a fellow Malibu local.
