I am a food blogger headed to sunny Santa Monica in 9 days for a blogging conference (IFBC). There will be lots of food at the conference, but I want the freedom to check out good spots that the locals recommend during our down time.
We will be staying near the Santa Monica Pier, so anything within a 20-30 minute walk would be great. I'd even hop in a cab for great food.
We love everything, so hit us with your best shot!
