looking for some recs in santa monica or environs. taking out a family member for her birthday and normally, we go pretty mainstream, but tonight i'd like a little "hole in the wall" type place with charm and "atmosphere." something low-key where we can sit back, relax, enjoy a glass of wine and a good, solid meal. nothing fancy, but preferably showcasing a seasonal menu. i know this is vague, but deliberately so. i'd like to branch out a bit. i'd prefer to avoid indian cuisine, however. any thoughts?
