SANTA MONICA - looking for great restaurant
Some quick recs:
Typhoon @ S.M. Airport - go early if possible, will be loud later, watch private jets land and take off while eating, good asian cuisine
Josie on Pico Blvd.
Chez Mimi (on 26th in Brentwood)
Drago (again closer to Brentwood)
Il Moro (again not in S.M.)
