Going to Greater Los Angeles

Sep 09, 2011 - Sep 11, 2011

List editor:


Looking for a good recommendation on a restaurant in Santa Monica (maybe Latin, but not Mexican) or Mediterranean. Forgot to mention we'll be "uncharacteristically LA" carless, but staying at the beach. Welcome a review of One Pico, although I was not impressed with their wine pairing menu that had beets in 2 of the 3 courses!

      food in Greater Los Angeles, with wicked-good garlic chicken and *incredible* moros (black beans with white rice). Don't let the humble ambiance fool you; this flavorful LA staple is a must-eat.

      Very casual (more of a lunch place) but definitely worth a try. There is another one in Beverly Hills

      home-made omelettes or fresh tamales, and even ride a pony if you are so inclined. They also have some of the best organic produce in the world! They usually have a live band performing as well.

      Via Veneto offers the best Italian on the west side. Everything is hand made on the premises and beautifully prepared. Its a bit on the pricey side, and it is very small, so make sure you have a ... read more
      reservation. Also, they do let you bring your own wine with a corkage fee (at least they did last time we were there) - which can save you a lot of money.
