Dinner mit beer twixt Santa Monica and Hollywood?

We go west of La Brea about once a decade but have persuaded the hub to visit the Santa Monica Museum of Art and then see a play at Melrose and Vista. Anyplace interesting between the two destinations? He's into beer. We're both pescaterians except don't eat shellfish. We are boring old fogies. Oh, and cheap too. I almost always have an appetizer as a main and he'll have a beer or two which I sip on. I've checked this board and two of the lightly candidates-District and Test Kitchen have bitten the dust and we'd prefer somewhere that isn't closed. Would like to keep tab under $70 and noise below ear splitting. No one will be surprised that we will be dining early. Culver City out of the way. GAS IS EXPENSIVE.

  1. You might like The Six on Pico. Good beer and their menu ought to fit your needs as well.

      Six absolutely a contender. Also scoping out Steingarten and Golden State. Any recent intelligence?

        Since I'm not a pescatarian I don't look to see what places like GS and Steingarten offer in that regard, but if I would do a bit of research just to make sure that your dietary preferences are available at whatever place you end up choosing.

        1. re: Layne Murphy

          Definitely Golden State. Their menu isn't large, but the veggie sandwich, salads, and sometimes fish 'n chips specials are all good, plus you'll be fairly close to the theater. Also, Village Idiot would be walking distance. I kind of like their menu designations of "No face" "No legs" "Two legs" and "Four legs." It gets crowded later but is fine around sixish. Haven't been to Steingarten yet.

      2. Not in between, but you might look at the Village Idiot and Blu Jam Cafe on Melrose or The Original Farmer's Market and Tusquellas Fish & Oyster Bar for your fish and E.B.’s Beer & Wine
        for the beer.
