Buon Giorno Cafe in Santa Monica open for dinner
I discovered this place through CH, even tho' I've lived a few blocks away for years. Finally tried express lunch last week and was quite impressed with the quality. The only problem, of course, is the parking. Anyway, discovered that for about 2 months now, they have been open for dinner. I went yesterday and got the salmon livornese (with tomato and peppers I think) to go. Comes with a side of very nice pasta and steamed veggies and some bread. They are empty at dinner apparently, because nobody knows about it, so I thought I'd put a heads up here for you fans of this place. This is a nice and cheaper alternative to Montana Ave. places and the food quality is surprisingly good. At night the street parking is not hard to find (parked right in front in fact). Location, by the way, is 15th and Santa Monica Blvd (1431 Santa Monica).
