Rudy & Hudson California Diner, Santa Monica, CA

Rudy & Hudson California Diner Restaurant Review

: Co-founders Lawrence Rudolph and chef Joe Miller (formerly of Joe's in Venice and Bar Pintxo in Santa Monica) Rudy & Hudson California Diner after their respective grandfathers. Striving to balance a classic New York City luncheonette and iconic California roadside coffee shop, this Santa Monica spot offers a menu of elevated traditional diner fare, as well as breakfast all day. Look for the likes of french toast filled with toasted coconut and banana with passion fruit sauce and powdered sugar, Cobb salad, a smoked brisket sandwich, barbecue baby-back ribs, California sand dabs and buttermilk fried chicken. Find a range of coffee and espresso drinks, house-made baked goods and grab-and-go options. Wine and beer will be available soon.
