Chef John Sedlar made his reputation by pioneering Southwestern cuisine at the now-shuttered Saint Estèphe in Manhattan Beach 30 years ago. After a long hiatus (and in a town not particularly kind to comebacks), he opened Rivera in 2009 with delicious dishes that fuse French technique with Latin American flavors like grilled lamb chop with a Brazilian bean-and-chorizo stew and Malbec reduction.
