Christmas Eve & Christmas Day in Santa Monica/ LA

Clairebrady | Oct 19, 2007 08:35 AM


We are staying at Shutters on the beach in Santa Monica for Christmas this year.

We're arriving on Christmas Eve. Is this a busy night for restaurants? Any suggestion for somewhere buzzy not too far from our hotel.

Any ideas on where to go for a fabulous Christmas day Lunch/ Dinner (either or both! ;0)) I think my husband would like something traditional - maybe turkey?!? We're both from London, travel a lot and like cool restaurants...

We will have a car and willing to drive if need be.

Suggestions welcome!
