Spitfire Grill, Lately?

PayOrPlay | Jun 21, 2007 08:17 PM

Has anyone visited Spitfire Grill, at the Santa Monica Airport, recently? The last time we were there (with a big group of families) it was a friendly place with fairly basic food. But looking at their website it appears they may have a bit more ambition now--items like "Chicken Curry Pasta, Peas, Cashews, and Cucumber Yogurt Relish" and "Beach Shrimp, Wrapped with Serrano Ham, Stuffed with Fresh Ranchero Cheese and Drizzled with Tomatillo Sauce" contend with standbys like meatloaf and burgers.

"Executive Chef" is Katsuji Tanabe, who I gather has been at a bunch of places around town and was a contestant on "Cooking Under Fire" (which I never saw). Intriguing, or dangerous? Any guidance?
