Christmas Lunch in Santa Monica

Here's the challenge - Xmas lunch in Santa Monica or close enough to get there by bus. Price per person - less than $30. Good for wheelchairs, kids and strollers. If the food would be good too I would be so happy. Wish there was a Chinese option nearby but realize it's unlikely. Did Thai Dishes last year. Any thoughts?

This Year's Anniversary Lunch

I was thinking about Water Grill but always thought it was out of my range -- what's the atmosphere like?

This Year's Anniversary Lunch

Hi All -- I'm planning a very special Friday lunch with my husband, and am trying to figure out what best fits the bill:

-Great food with some buzz
-Location between Mid-town and Downtown
-Open for lunch
-Nice Atmosphere (doesn't have to be "romantic" but maybe not too grungy)
-$75 or under per person including one drink each

I'm considering:
Baco Mercat
Spice Table
Bottega Louie
Son of a Gun

In previous year's we've gone to Drago Centro, Lazy Ox and Rivera and had a great time, but would like to try something new.

Spice Table or Baco Mercat

Curious about which everyone would prefer for lunch instead?

Anniversary Lunch on the Eastside

It's been nearly two years since my husband and I have had a grown-ups only meal together. We'd love to go someplace new(ish) and noteworthy (romantic a plus) to celebrate our anniversary -- it will be a weekday lunch. Eastside (MidCity to Glendale and SFV) would be best, and we'd like to come in at around $60 per person including drinks. Back when we used to go out AOC and La Botte were two of our favorites. Any suggestions? I was thinking about Hatfields and Cafe Was -- but I don't really know what to expect.
