Locally renowned chef Ross Pangilinan opens new restaurant concept at Long Beach Exchange

Long Beach Exchange, East Long Beach’s most dynamic destination for shopping and dining, announced the expected Fall 2019 opening of ReMix Kitchen Bar, a new concept created by locally renowned chef and restauranteur, Ross Pangilinan. ReMix Kitchen Bar at Long Beach Exchange will be the award-winning chef’s third restaurant concept in Southern California and will offer customers a uniquely different dining opportunity centered on New American fusion flavors.

Pangilinan’s first two restaurants, Mix Mix Kitchen Bar in Downtown Santa Ana and Terrace by Mix Mix at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, are acclaimed dining destinations that have been recognized among Orange County’s hottest restaurants.

“My team and I have been honored to serve diners in Orange County and are thrilled to venture into Long Beach with a new concept at Long Beach Exchange,” said Pangilinan. “We’ve developed ReMix Kitchen Bar to appeal to a wide range of palates with a blend of eclectic flavors from around the world.”

Pangilinan is known for artfully mixing a diverse range of influences — ranging from French to Italian to modern Filipino cuisine — in his popular, chef-driven restaurants. His singular skill and point of view are evidenced in dishes including the soft egg raviolo with browned butter and guanciale and the pork cheek adobo at the original Mix Mix Kitchen Bar in Santa Ana. At Terrace by Mix Mix in Costa Mesa, customers are greeted with a welcoming ambience through the use of natural light, greenery and modern décor. Part of the restaurant’s concept includes a seasonal three-course express lunch menu that changes daily and is available Monday through Friday. Pangilinan plans to offer an express lunch menu at ReMix Kitchen Bar in Long Beach as well.

“Long Beach Exchange continues to draw top culinary talents and concepts to the City of Long Beach,” says Steve Thorp, Partner at Burnham-Ward Properties. “We are proud that Ross selected our center for his exciting new concept, ReMix Kitchen Bar, which will quickly become a favorite for locals and visitors alike.”
