Santa Monica Rec's

Anything new in Santa Monica? I'm having dinner there Saturday PM. I've made a reservation at Josie which is my go-to place but wondering if there's anything else I should be trying. Have done most (I think) of the standard spots, most of which I'm lukewarm about. I did Melisse ages ago which was great. The restaurant at Shutters is fine but I prefer Josie. Joe's in Venice I am blah about. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone been to Cezanne?

Thx

Craft restaurant in Century City

i had a truly disappointing meal there a couple weeks ago. the octopus chorizo thing was totally mediocre, as was a $130 steak for two. sides were okay. service was average at best. i would go to CUT a million times before going back to craft, and i'm not even that big a fan of CUT. blah.

The Foundry vs. Hatfield's?

i just went to hatfield's for the first time last night and it was totally excellent. i've read mixed reviews on this board but everything was awesome. i would rate it above lucques, jar, and maybe even grace. check came to $240 for 2 ppl incl. 3 cocktails, 2 glasses of wine, 3 courses each. the hamachi croque madame that has received mixed reviews was truly outstanding, as was the lamb. restaurant is very mellow and unpretentious. i will be going back sometime soon -- has anyone done the tasting menu?

Dinner Near Greek Theater -- Advice?

Hi All--

I'm looking to do something fun for dinner tomorrow night near the Greek Theater, pre-Wilco. I don't get over to the Los Feliz / Silverlake area often at all and I'm sure there's some gems over there so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try something. I am very adventurous with food (not that strange stuff is a requirement) and don't mind places that are a little more spendy.

Those of you who get over there more often than I do, your recommendations would be heartily appreciated. Thanks in advance--

Charlie
