Golden Bull Restaurant
170 W Channel Rd, Santa Monica, CA 90402
it has that old-school Spanish decor that was the fashion then....red leather booths, black wrought iron, exposed brick walls...Anyway, the early bird special for the prime rib is a really good deal. If you live in this neighborhood, or find yourself nearby, it is worth checking out.
2104 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405
this is a fabulous restaurant. It is clean and lovely, with a beautiful patio. Located on the north end of Main Street, this place has apparently been around for over 30 years.
Tasty dishes, real homemade feel to them.

Bodega Wine Bar

Its not really a wine bar, but more like a cool lounge. Great music, lots of space to sit and have an actual conversation. Highly recommended for meeting friends, date, etc!!!
