Lares is a great family ran restaurant. The food is some of the best Mexican food in Los Angeles. Just the salsa makes it worth the visit but don't forget the margaritas which are excellent and strong! Go off the well known dishes and try the birria, lengua and their delicious mole. I prefer the lunch service to the dinner if you want the service Lares can give.

Next Door is a really a great gastro-pub experience. The food is so much better than other similar choices. The Duck Bahn Mi is mind-blowing. Check out their cocktail list, all of the choices are excellent. The only area of improvement is service seems understaffed making it hard to visit as a lunch choice during work hours.

Josie's is a Santa Monica institution. Josie was doing farm to table before that became a trendy thing. Using the great farmers markets and local growers their food always explodes with fresh flavor. Their wine list is a nice balance of choices for the type of menu they serve. Make sure and try one of their cocktails as they share a bar with Next Door which makes a mean drink. Relaxed and tasty.
