Help - need place between Santa Monica and Newport Beach to meet

2redsliders Jul 31, 2011 10:57 AM

I'm meeting a friend late this afternoon. He's staying in Santa Monica, I'm in Newport Beach, and we want to split the distance and meet somewhere in the middle. I never get off the freeway between LA and OC, though, so don't know anyplace good. He's an Aston-Martin driving, mansion-living, Dolce & Gabanna-wearing foodie, and won't step into anyplace that isn't first-rate. We could drive into beach cities if there isn't anything at a convenient 405 exit (ha!). APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL HELP!!! Meeting about 3pm today, Sunday.

      Thanks for the tip. Great looking menu! But definitely too down-home for him. His body is a pristine temple of chicken and fish.
