Dinner Tonight in Santa Monica

  • 7

My two girlfriend's and I are going to a casual dinner tonight in SM after a spa treatment. Any recs? Preferably more low key because we will be in casual attire and one friend is pregnant.

    1. Fritto Misto on 6th and Broadway.

        1. Josie's would be good tonight (they do farmer's market prix-fixe on Wednesday, 3-courses for around $35/pp), and I highly recommend tacking on the truffle fries - dress code may be more in the "smart casual" range though. www.josierestaurant.com

          I also recommend Violet's - more casual, mac 'n cheese and the za'tar spiced fries are must-have there. www.violetrestaurant.com


          1. Il Dolce on Montana and 11th. Most adorable little European style cafe. Haven't been in a few years, but I used to go 2x a week when I lived down the street.
