Looking for a cozy spot for dinner on a blustery rainy night (like tonight!)? Go to Hinterland on the new hipped up part of Main St. Santa Monica. A Scandanavian design dreamboat of restaurant with cozy booths, ambient lighting, attractive and on it staff, healthy yet tasty food and a prolific wine list. Order the Grains & Greens (trust us meat eaters!) and a glass of red wine. And the bread pudding, too!
Other cozy restaurants on the westside:
1. Giorgio Baldi – a classic Italian
3. Capo – another classic Italian with a fireplace (bit of a splurge!)
