Eat Well Week

Experience Healthy Options

To celebrate California Restaurant Month and highlight Santa Monica as an award-winning, health-conscious culinary destination, Santa Monica restaurants offered a specially-crafted artichoke dish for Eat Well Week™, January 11-17, 2016. Throughout the week, diners voted for their favorite artichoke dish for a chance to win prizes.

A huge thank you to all the amazing chefs who participated and made Eat Well Week the success it was.

And congratulations to the winning restaurants – Inotheke, eLOVate Vegan Kitchen, and grand prize winner The Upper West – which were the top three restaurants with the most votes!
