El Camino is open for your dining pleasure. The "monument to the beach towns of Southern California, and SoCal surf culture's" weekday hours are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and weekends it's open 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. (last seating for dinner at 12 a.m.). Co-owner Shawn Cantley says to expect weekday lunch service at Bardstown Road restaurant in four weeks.
With executive chef Jonathan Schwartz, Cantley and Larry Rice's follow-up to Silver Dollar pairs authentic Mexican street food with artisanal tiki drinks, set to surf music on vinyl. But you knew that.
