          If you do a search, you'll see a few reviews on Riva here. And Riva is at 3rd and Wilshire. There are 2 new restaurants about to open at 10th and Wilshire.

            The place being remodeled on the S/E corner of Wilshire at 10th is going to be the new retail outlet and cafe for Santa Monica Seafood. It used to be a Carl's Jr. or something, and then tested the seafood concept as the !0th Street Cafe. Two doors to the east, in what used to be the Pick-Up Stix or somesuch fastfood Chinese, will be the breakfast and lunch cafe and bakery from the Rustic Canyon folks.
