Newly re-opened, this place has a large outdoor space which can be covered or open depending on the climate. It serves a mix of tapas-style dishes for groups to share. The food comes out when it's ready which can mean you're there a while if in a large group, but each dish does have an explosion of flavour whether you order the duck, steak, spaghetti, black rice, shrimp or quail! The dishes do look a bit on the small side for the price and the cocktails didn't seem all that strong. Not a terrible experience but I won't be rushing back.

Michael's is a Santa Monica institution, but their new chef, Miles Thompson, has injected some new life into both the restaurant and its dishes. Plates come out with a mix of savory and sweet components, like violet yams paired with grenache vinegar marshmallows. And the deconstructed cheesecake for dessert is a must-order.
