Casual Lunch Saturday in Santa Monica; Help!
- a213b Jul 17, 2009 07:08 AM
So I am looking for a great, casual brunch/lunch Saturday in the SM area (though WLA and points a bit South are welcome, too). It will be 3 adults and a young child, so bear that in mind. Also, by casual, I mean CASUAL, as I will be coming from playing in a soccer game.
We've done Bay Cities, we've done brunch at Amandine and Huckleberry ... just had a great burger at Hungry Cat last night, and we're doing Rivera for dinner tomorrow, so no burgers or Latin please.
Having said all that, suggest away! Thanks!
We love their tortilla soup with chicken. Enough bite without being too spicy and a very unique, thicker soup.
They normally have some very good salads. Last time I had their lamb salad with beautiful slices of medium rare (how I ordered it) lamb over a bed of mixed greens, ripe tomatoes, asparagus tips and red onions dressed with a balsamic vinegrette.
They have really good pancakes too, if you're into breakfast and I often have their huevos rancheros on blue corn tortillas.
Cynthia's on the Corner - Montana and 15th. Perfect place for your needs, and the food is fantastic.
I cannot stand 17th Street, yuch.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. We actually decided on Anisette. I've been there for dinner and really enjoyed it, and have heard good things about their brunch/lunch. Also, I'll quickly clean up before going.
