Santa Monica, CA - July 2014

A first rate operation with authentic local color--non corporate and familiar in tone.  So glad to find this place.  Can't overuse the terms "clean" and "charming," or "unrehearsed friendliness."  (One pays a bit of a premium for these and well worth it.) 

Close to a wonderful surfing beach, Newport Harbor, "the Wedge," very good restaurants like Mario Batali's Mozza up the PCH, the Laguna Art Museum with outstanding turn-of-century Southern California impressionist paintings, and of course other beach cities within close reach.  Thanks Warren, Mr. Pratt, and staff!
