Comfortable Santa Monica Saturday Dinner

311 | Mar 18, 2006 06:41 PM

My family surprised me for the weekend and we have dinner reservations tonight at Michael's. But I REALLY needed a calm weekend and don't feel like putting myself together for the Saturday night crowd at Michael's or Jiraffe (their backup).

Can anyone recommend a comfortable place for dinner tonight on the westside where we can be sure to avoid any attitude or feel the need to be "on"? This is no slam on Michael's or Jiraffe, I just want a place we can have great food in jeans and my North Face fleece.

We enjoyed Il Forno last night, if that gives you an idea of the atmosphere I'd love to find.
