I've long been curious about Warszawa in Santa Monica, but have never crossed its threshold. Yesterday, while browsing in a nearby art store, I overheard a clerk raving about the adjacent outdoor lounge area, The Patio. He said something about tiki torches, lounge chairs, and a big tree. Nice!
He also mentioned that food from the Warszawa menu was served there as well, including my new favorite comfort food, spaetzle. Whoa!
Since then, I've rooted around on the web for info on this place, and all sorts of intriguing tidbits have emerged: they host screenings of independent films in the outdoor area; they host speakers on a variety of topics; and, yeah, they serve spaetzle. I see there are a few fans of Warszawa here on chowhound, as well.
So, anyway...anyone been to The Patio? I'll be making a visit myself, and soon, but I'd love to hear the inside chow-poop on the place.
