Let's try Rustic Canyon for dinner! For large parties, we can order off the menu but the food is served family style and the cost is $65.00 per person and includes one appetizer, one entree and one desert.
Here is what LA Weekly has to say:
Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan's Rustic Canyon has always showcased exactly what's so fantastic about this part of the world: the produce, the wine, the slow, harmonious, beachy way of life. Under new chef Jeremy Fox, the restaurant continues to honor all those things. But it's also become a vehicle for Fox to flaunt his considerable talents, and it's the place in Santa Monica right now where we're most excited to eat. The menu may not look that different from other modern farm-to-table spots, but Fox's light touch and masterful use of seasonal produce puts it way out ahead of the pack. A silky cream of sunchoke soup has its sweetness amplified with touches of coffee and fennel pollen; his clam and mussel pozole verde manages to sing a clear, bright note of acid while also being comforting and hearty. This is a chef who has attracted attention over the years for all sorts of reasons -- one gets the feeling that right now, in this moment, that attention is because he's finally doing exactly what he's best at, with no constraints. 1119 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica;[masked]-7050.
