Jason and Jonathan Baran

Tastemaker

Jason and Jonathan Baran are the owners of Hermosa Beach strip mall dining gem, Baran's 2239. Inspired by the South Bay's social ease and beachy locale, the menu features dishes you'll want to share few ways. Growing up in a family of restaurateurs, they always dreamed of opening their own place. In 2016, they launched Baran’s 2239—the name pays homage to our family’s Pasadena restaurant, which operated for half a century since 1937.
