Malibu will welcome another restaurant along Pacific Coast Highway, Tavern 1 American Grill, in early June.
The restaurant — which focuses on “real southern barbecue cuisine,” chef and owner Marco Gonzalez said — will be the sister location to Gonzalez’s barbecue joint in Agoura Hills, Tavern 101.
“There’s no barbecue out in Malibu,” Gonzalez said. “We’ll be the only ones. So we’re hoping to fill a need out there.”
