Lunch near Farmer Market?

Taking my Grandmother and Aunt to Santa Monica for the Farmers Market and would like to have lunch anywhere between Santa Monica and Hawthorne. Nothing fancy, just chow worthy. Great seafood would be good. Ethnic's always good! Any suggestions?

  1. You could check out Monte Alban in West LA for Oaxacan food.

    You could go to 26 Beach in Marina del Rey for a big menu of salads, burgers, etc. The food here is pretty well done, but it's also a pretty conventional list of items.

    You could grab lunch at one of the places on Abbot Kinney -- Joe's, Lilly's, or Jin Patisserie. All of them are good, but they are very different from each other.

    You could go to Rose Cafe in Venice for a healthy, pleasant lunch.

    There are tons of options, but there's a start...

    1. The above suggestions are great!

      3 Square?

      I would say chez Mimi,but it may be a bit pricey.

      Literati 2 perhaps

        How could I forget 3 Square?!?!? I love that place and it exactly fits the bill.
