  1. I would suggest you look at Fig, Fraiche, Gjelina, Musha, Rustic Canyon and Wilshire. Wilshire and Gjelina have patio dining if that might appeal.

    Rustic Canyon Wine Bar
    1119 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401

    Wilshire Restaurant
    2454 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90404

    424 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401

    1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, USA

    FIG Restaurant Santa Monica
    101 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90401, USA

    Fraiche Santa Monica
    312 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90403

    1. Not in Santa Monica, but nearby:

      Waterloo & City is a lively Gastropub with afforadable and great selection of wine and beer and GREAT affordable smaller size dishes, but good for sharing. Everyone I have sent there is very happy.
