Eastsider having lunch Westside-Santa Monica?
A foodie friend is coming to town from NYC and I'd like to eat lunch Westside after picking him up from the airport. He expressed a desire to eat somewhere that has outside dining (I guess he thinks it's going to be hot haha).
I'm Eastside so don't know too many places over there. Would like to keep the cost relatively low(er). any ideas? Open to cuisine. Something close to the beach, perhaps?
