"American" isn't just Oreos and apple pie. Lots of LA restaurants specialize in local, new age American cuisine. Gives the saying "As American as apple pie" a run for it's money!
They boast on of the best steaks I've ever eaten. So tender and meaty that it's perfectly fine without any added salt or sauce. I'm also a big fan of Suzanne Tracht and impressed at what a great female chef role model she is.
Great indoors as well as outdoors atmosphere. Great for a romantic dinner out or just to hang with some friends. Although their desserts are so good, I wouldn't share with anyone.
Great for burgers and hipster-watching. Actually, they pretty much make any sandwich incredible cause I wanted to taste what my friends were having.
Oxtail, foie gras, sliders....leave the vegans with the valet guy.
Swanky drinks and speedy service that will make sure you won't miss the artsy movie you'll be seeing next door.
Delicious food and a "not-so-pretentious" atmosphere for Beverly Hills. Great for a casual dinner with resorting to Applebee's.
A little unusual restaurant but totally delectable, homey, and unique in the best way possible way! Try to snag a seat outside if you can!
Order their pear flower cocktail and delicious fried chicken! Great service and trendy vibe. Just don't wipe the delicious chicken grease on your dress!
Very cool vibe and great place for both mingling and dining. You MUST try the oyster po' boy. You should really try everything, but the po boys are unreal!
My very favorite Santa Monica comfort food fix! Gluten free mac n cheese that I didn't even know was gluten free!!! Mind. Blown.
Comfort food I NEVER got at home and now I'm making up for it by coming here and gorging on everything.
Awesome selection of figure-friendly food. They even have an impressive selection of gluten free items!
Funky art, creative menu items, and super-hot hostess!
