10 Best Contest – Upper West

By Kimberly Wiethorn

Upper West

Hi everyone! I’m Kim and my list of  “10 Best” in Santa Monica was the winner of their recent contest! My wonderful prize included dinner at 10 places in Santa Monica and I’m so excited to share my experiences with the readers.

My first stop was Upper West.  I’ve been here before many times and it’s one of my favorites in Santa Monica.  Excellent food that changes with the seasonal ingredients available, to-die-for drinks, and the staff keeps me coming back for more whether it’s a group dinner for a birthday, business lunch/dinner/drinks, or Sunday Funday with a friend. They also have started all sorts of fun events like scotch and bourbon tasting with experts that I look forward to trying.

On this particular visit I brought a friend who was visiting from my home state of Texas and another fellow Santa Monica resident. I had one of my favorite staples on the menu–the Buratta, which they pair with berries, apples, blistered tomatoes and chamomile sea salt.  I also had crab cakes and quinoa for my entree which were to die for. Although I didn’t have them this time I highly recommend the blue cheese fries.

For drinks, my favorite is the cucumber martini with gin (and I’m not a gin girl)–it tastes like spa water it’s so smooth.   The owners also do an excellent job of always having an ever rotating selection of limited production wines that I look forward to trying and is great to expose yourself to new winemakers.

It’s a foodies dream. And so reasonably priced. Get there quick the secret seems to be getting out!

Thanks santamonica.com!
