Our guest this morning is Demi Stevens, proprietor of Ortega 120 and Hey 19.
As one of the most renowned mixologists in the hospitality industry, Demi is a force to be reckoned with. She has successfully created cocktail menus that utilize unique ingredients that complement her restaurant’s dynamic food menus.
Demi’s first personal restaurant endeavor, Ortega 120 located in Redondo Beach, currently houses the “Best Classic Margarita,” as determined by LA Weekly. Ortega 120 has also been honored with awards such as “Diner’s Choice Winner” “Best Dinner Dates on a Budget,” and “Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Los Angeles.”
Her most recent venture, Hey 19 Public House, is a “rustic American” themed restaurant and bar featuring craft cocktails and new-American, organic conscious, comfort food. Hey 19 opened its doors in Torrance in late 2014 and was instantly named one of the “Best New Restaurants of 2014” by Easy Reader.
With her “whiskey in a tea cup” attitude, mixology brilliance, the ability to understand both front and back house management of a restaurant, and dedicated guest and staff following, it is no wonder why every restaurant Demi touches turns to gold.
I’ve long been a fan of Ortega 120 and Hey 19 has become my go-to place for not just the food, but dancing! I’ve recently heard some rumors about other special events Demi has on the drawing board and can’t wait to hear more details!
