  1. EL TAXATE RESTAURANT
    316 PICO BLVD
    SANTA MONICA
    90405

    CORA'S COFFEE SHOPPE
    1802 OCEAN AVE
    SANTA MONICA
    90401

    Whist at the Viceroy hotel

    Tons of places along ocean and in the promenade

    La Botte at 7th and Santa monica is a bit far from the civic but a personal fave.

    1. Nothing but great choices nearby!

      Walk down to Main Street and take your pick - go to Library Alehouse, which is always good. Cora's is a great suggestion.

      1. When you are driving to/from, make a pit stop at Tacos Por Favor for the chorizo and cheese taco... you won't regret it.

        1. Chaya on Main Street is always great. Not sure if they do lunch though....
          The Galley is good old school steak/burger fare-also on Main.
          Cora's (Ocean Ave) does a really good burger.
          Bravo pizzeria on main street has a decent slice but awful service.
          I personally heart Chez Jay (Ocean Ave) . Your classic dive bar w/ decent eats IMO.

          1. Cha Cha Chicken is just a couple blocks away at Pico and Ocean.

            But also, you can get a damn good hotdog at the auditorium snackbar.
