Moving To Santa Monica and searched a lot! Check my list?!

junglekitte | Sep 6, 2010 01:13 AM

I've been living in OC and NYC for years and haven't been a part of LA in a long time! I'm moving to Santa Monica soon and can't wait to try all the restaurants. I've done a lot of searching through the LA board for Santa Monica (and close surrounding areas) and have come up with this list! Please let me know what you think...should I take any of these off the list? Or are all they good choices? Anything I forgot that should be on there? And which ones would you suggest I run to first? :) I'm into full-flavored, authentic foods from around the world (especially from the Mediterranean region, Mexico, and the Indian subcontinent) and not interested in trends that have been done to death or chain-style restaurants. I've had enough of that in South OC! :)
