I am coming to Santa Monica next month and need one or two dinner options. Here are the details, which make for some unusual parameters.
1) Our party includes an 8 and 12 year old who are very good in restaurants as long as there's something on the menu for them to eat (not necessarily a kids menu, though).
2) Price isn't an object on one of the two nights.
3) One of the nights is Sunday.
4) We won't have a car, so we need to be able to get there easily from the JW Marriott hotel.
If those conditions are met, I'll be OK, but additionally, Id love a warm and casual environment, maybe some LA flair, and favorite cuisines are seafood and Italian. Any suggestions? Thanks!
