I am trying to find a casual neighborhood restaurat with the feel of The Galley or Chez Jay but with better food. Growing up in Santa Monica, I remember (maybe incorrectly) both of these restaurants having fantastic salad and steak. I have eaten at each of them recently after many years. The vibe is exactly the same but the food at both was mediocre at best. I am hoping this restaurant will be on the Westside but I will drive if needed. It can even be less casual but I do like the non-chain feel of these places. I know Cut and Mastro's have great steak but that's not what I am looking for.
