Wilshire Restaurant, Santa Monica, CA

Wilshire Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Wilshire Restaurant has a homey feel, thanks to the variety of inviting dining spaces. Adjacent to the interior bar and lounge is "The Library" room lined with books. However, the real attraction is the multi-level outdoor patio shaded by trees and sail-like canvases. Guests will find another bar as well as loft-like private dining areas that overlook the action. Chef Brendan Collins (formerly of Birch) has stepped in to oversee the kitchen. The market-inspired menu might start off with fried squash blossoms or hamachi sashimi. Entrées offer wide appeal with options like pastas, braised short ribs and salmon. For dessert, indulge in flourless chocolate cake. Discounted drinks and bar snacks are featured during happy hour (weekdays 3 p.m.-7 p.m.), available only in the front bar area.
