Chef Rebecca Merhej's seasonal approach to cooking inspired mar'sel's extensive herb garden located just steps from the kitchen. Chef Merhej utilizes the best of Southern California's locally grown produce and herbs in her ever-changing menu. Whether fresh parsley incorporated in a special dish or rosemary in a handcrafted cocktail, the bright sun and crisp breezes in Rancho Palos Verdes are ideal for a garden to thrive here. Designed and managed by Home Grown Edible Landscapes, the garden hosts hands-on gardening workshops for each season. HGEL can show you and your family how to have a chef's garden at home.
