40 Under 40 Winner: Steve Massis

On Thursday, April 25, the Long Beach Post hosted an event to honor young people from around the city who are doing great things to better their community and beyond. Out of hundreds of nominations from our readers, judges chose 40 winners who run the gamut from educators to artists to business owners to community activists, all of whom represent just a selection of those who are today contributing to the betterment of Long Beach.


Steve Massis has been a familiar face around the Belmont Shore area serving as the general manager of two popular 2nd Street restaurants, Open Sesame and Le Creperie. However, it was always his dream to operate his own business. In August of last year, that dream came true when he opened The Attic in the former Lasher’s location in Belmont Heights. The Attic serves New Orleans and Creole-inspired foods because Massis believed that as eclectic and international as Long Beach is, it needed a touch of Southern hospitality.

The Attic is located at 3441 Broadway, theatticonbroadway.com
