Tiato Kitchen + Garden Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Catherine An takes the lead at this market café from the House of An restaurant group, creators of Crustacean in Beverly Hills and AnQi Gourmet Bistro in Costa Mesa. Located in the Lionsgate building in Santa Monica, the large space is constructed from reclaimed wood, raw concrete and eco-friendly materials, giving it a Zen style. It opens onto a great outdoor patio, where fresh herbs and produce like chili peppers, Meyer lemons and makrut limes are grown and used by chef Helene An.

Food & Drinks: The restaurant’s namesake comes from Catherine’s love of the Vietnamese herb tiato (also known as shiso). For breakfast, you'll encounter pancakes, smoked gouda scramble and avocado toast. Eclectic lunch items include a lemongrass beef burger, banh mi selections and create-your-own plates. In the sweets department, tiato flavors baked goods like cookies and muffins.
