Imagine Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas spliced with an episode of LA Ink: 2nd Floor may be the most macabre, Gothic tattoo-inspired art gallery/restaurant above a surf shop found anywhere, but especially in Huntington Beach. The art showcased on every inch of wall space revels in Dia de Los Muertos imagery, replete with coffins and skeletons. The rest of the gorgeous paintings celebrate the female form, often as exaggerated, hyper-sexualized cartoon creatures with prominent breasts. But if 2nd Floor is anything, it is a bar of the same ilk as any on Main Street, with the requisite supply of LCD TVs perennially tuned to sports. The chef hired to devise the menu was previously with the House of Blues and also managed food services at Arrowhead Pond. As such, you should not expect to see her cooking your burgers in the open kitchen. The crew that operates there under her direction does so with the urgency of short-order cooks. The food produced is on par with what you expect from bar food.
