Very casual dinner in or near SM? Like Apple Pan or Zankou level casual ...

Looking for a super casual, almost fast food type spot for dinner in SM. Something like a Phillipe, Langer's, Zankou or Apple Pan. Super non fancy. I tried the Counter once and was very disppointed. Father's Office will be too hectic because we just want something very simple. I thought about Izzy's, but something a tinge healthier would be nice. Maybe even Hurry Curry if that's open? Something near the beach would ideal though.

  1. How about Damon & Pythias, right at 3rd & Wilshire? Very casual, can can eat healthy if you want, and right near the beach.

    1. there is also sunnin on westwood blvd just north of SM blvd.

      1. Small neighborhood Italian - there is Spumoni at 7th & Montana. Check out their website for a free $15 (?) pizza promotion if you spend at least $25. Is it for eat-in, to-go orders or both?

        1. Also near the beach (6 blocks) and not expensive and very nice atmosphere is:

          Fritto Misto
          601 Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90401
          (310) 458-2829

          1. I love Sunnin, but it is more Westwood than Santa Monica.
