Vegan in Santa Monica or near in return for a Really Big Favor.
I'm looking to take a a great friend out for a fantastic dinner. They did me wonderful favor and I want to treat them to an unforgettable vegan dinner.
Well please forgive me if I sound condesending but the answer is so obvious and right under your nose, RealFoodDaily
not really an exact answer to your question:
RFD offers nice food, but imho their food is very FAR from unforgettable.
as a matter of fact i've already forgotten what i had there last.
not in santa monica,
but i'd call providence and ask them if their vegetarian tasting menu can be done as a vegan tasting menu. THAT would be unforgettable.
Akasha in Culver City has many vegan items on the menu and can make many of their dishes vegan upon request. Plus, it's a nice-looking restaurant so you feel like you are going out for the night.
