From the outside, 4th & Olive looks like yet another Long Beach gastropub. But this restaurant just on the edge of Downtown Long Beach is very much not that. It’s an Alsatian place, owned and staffed by veterans, with an interesting wine list. There’s a fairly big menu, but the main thing you need to know is that 4th & Olive is home to one of the best pork chops we’ve ever eaten. It’s enormous, perfectly cooked, and reason enough to get here. But if you needed another, there’s always the house made pretzel too.
4th & Olive is permanently closed.
