Greetings from a DC hound. My wife and I will be staying in Santa Monica for a few nights early January. Trying to decide on dinners, will definitely hit Fathers office once or twice for lunch as we're out and about. We have a rezzie at Rustic Canyon Wine Bar, which we've really enjoyed on previous visits. Ate at Jiraffe a few months ago; it was good but I can't say it was memorable. Can't really decide how "upscale" I want to go for other 3 dinners. Any recent experiences at Chinois? Other thoughts? I know this is a little vague for now but as always any suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks!
