Santa Monica Restaurant Suggestions

lacook | Jan 30, 201103:37 PM

We haven't been to the West Cost in over 10 years. Hubby and I are going out (no kids) for a few days - staying @ Loews on the beach.

We are mid 40's but love to party - look and act young (according to East Coast standards) Not at all stuffy, but love a nice restaurant as well as a good bar for drinks and food. I say this because i don't want to stick out like the East Coasters we are :-)

Can you guys throw us some suggestions for the following (in Santa Monica or a short drive) Preference is to be able to see the water but not a deal breaker.
1) Nice dinner restaurant but not stuff and requires suits/ties. We don't like french. Thinking of BOA - would like a Steak and a Seafood suggestion. Nice atmosphere - can be a little loud - don't like close tables
2) Good place to watch the super bowl - thinking of Busby
3) Good bar that serves dinner at the bar

Looking forward to your suggestions!!!

p.s. I'm assuming for daytime jeans and a trendy t-shirt and fashionable shoes won't cause the fashion police to arrest us? Nite time, a simple black dress?
