Dinner in Santa Monica
I am going to Santa Monica today with my husband and I need a dinner place. I am a transplanted NYer and I am looking for something with good atmosphere, moderately priced, preferably trendy. Could be Italian, American, Med etc.
thanks so much!
Abode - but without a reservation you will need to sit at the bar area and order off the bar menu (which is moderately priced)
Rustic Canyon - (reservation required)
Chaya Venice - (bar area)
Anything along Ocean - Sushi Roku, Boa, I Cugini, Makai (which fits the trendy & atmosphere request, but maybe not the moderately priced request)
Beechwood's patio/bar area (Venice)
Lilly's on Abbot Kinney fits all requirements.
Rustic Canyon fits all your requirements. It can get kinda loud, but I think most places in NY are loud too, so you might not even notice it. Great wine and food (American fare, and they try to use seasonal and local ingredients). I love their burger.
