I know there are a number of posts here about lunch in Santa Monica, but I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
We're flying in from Buffalo and driving out to Palm Springs and wanted to stop somewhere for lunch. I was thinking Santa Monica was convenient. Looking for somewhere casual with outdoor seating. I'm very familar with LA, lived here for 3 months.
I was thinking of going somewhere on Abbott Kinney -- I looked at Gjelina or Joe's (I have been to Joe's a number of times). Although, Gjelina has gotten mixed reviews on these boards.
Huckleberry also appealed to me, but it's hard for me to tell what their outdoor seating situation is.
