Our Story

Owner Mersedeh Ahrablou spent 12 years waitressing around town after graduating from Santa Monica High, and we should all be grateful that she managed to scrape up the money to open this very cheerful outpost by the beach.

The food is less fattening than the typical pasta blowout or Mexican cuisine and reminds me of Victor’s on Columbus in New York, where I would go for the Ropa Vieja or Old Clothes, an old Havana classic, which Mercedes serves.
