Four Daughters Kitchen Promotes Family Time, Posts 'Fall Back' Hours

Oct 25, 2016 08:30PM ● By Liz Spear

Four Daughters Kitchen in North Manhattan Beach is doing what perhaps could be called the unthinkable: reducing its hours of operation.

But in the case of the hugely popular eatery the reason for scaling back its hours is so that staff can spend more time with their own families in the hopes locals and FDK's diners will do the same;

So, FDK has already put its “Fall Back” hours of operation into action, Sundays through Thursdays from 7 a.m.-7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays 7 a.m.-9 p.m.

“With people’s hectic schedules, we forget what is truly important… those small moments spent at home with the family,” said Kori Clausen, owner of Four Daughters Kitchen. “While we are scaling back our hours of operation by a little, we want to allow our staff more time to enjoy with their own families, and inspire our loyal guests in the community to do the same.”

The beachy dining spot recently held its 3rd Annual Clint Clausen 4DK Fours Volleyball Tournament on October 8th. Proceeds from the tournament are being given to a college fund for Four Daughters Kitchen late founder Clint Clausen’s four daughters, as well as costs to subsidize heart screenings for those who cannot afford to get checked for heart disease. Clausen died of an unexpected heart attack in 2014.

“Clint was larger than life," said his wife Kori. "He touched people in so many ways and never met a stranger. This volleyball tournament our way of paying it forward. 

“Volleyball was a passion that Clint and our oldest daughter shared, and we would like to help others prevent what we have experienced.”

Four Daughters Kitchen is located at 3505 Highland Ave., Manhattan Beach.
