Unique Santa Monica Dinners
Located on Pico Boulevard, away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Monica, lies Upper West: a creative yet approachable restaurant that’s become popular with locals. The constantly-changing menu features unique takes on classic dishes, like coffee-crusted Kurobuta pork tenderloin and seared crab cakes. Their expansive happy hour menu is available every day from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Mondays.
Modern American meets tavern at The Independence in Downtown Santa Monica on Broadway. Serving up cocktails and happy hours, they’re a neighborhood favorite. Their menu features local and seasonal food, their ambiance has great energy…and they’re named after the railroad, the Los Angeles & Independence.
