Malibu Farm,831 W. Harbor Dr.
Remember the landmark’s longtime restaurant, Harbor House? It shuttered a while back, but SoCal’s Malibu Farm has taken over the prime, bayfront real estate in the heart of Seaport Village — and given it a multi-million dollar renovationthat’ll turn it into an indoor and outdoor eatery also featuring an ice cream shop + home goods store.
The farm-to-table concept is helmed by celeb chef Helene Henderson + her husband, actor John Stockwell. We’d say this is the highest profile takeover at the landmark thus far.
