"California" cuisine (with a few restrictions) on the Westside tonight?

Hi Hounds-
My SO has to organize a dinner for some colleagues tonight on the Westside with some restrictions:
They specified "California" cuisine,
no "pasta-heavy" menus (the boss thinks that makes the place Italian),
they have been to Gjelina, Upper West, and Tasting Kitchen over and over, so they're out too.
Thanks for the recs!

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

  1. a few thoughts:

    westside tavern

    1. Cal cuisine on Westside? Rustic Canyon. Tavern Brentwood would be a close second.

      1. Michael's in Santa Monica
        Fraiche in Santa Monica or Culver City (though, they do have pasta on the menu)

        1. My idea of California cuisine is Cafe del Rey and you cant get more west side.

              Third RC. Just went. Forgot how much I liked that place.

          1. Thanks everyone-
            even though we live on the westside I draw a blank sometimes for these things.
