Santa Monica is one of, if not my #1, my favorite places in LA. Montana Avenue has a bunch of cute restaurants and little shops waiting to be explored. While the boutiques and restaurants can get pricey, I found a semi- affordable (for dinner) yummy little corner restaurant that is good for every type of foodie: [typography font=”Cantarell” size=”15″ size_format=”px” color=”#ff6666″]Art’s Table!

We were just two people not looking to eat really heavy but still wanting a bit of everything, so here’s what we ordered:
- Pomme Frites
- Beet Salad
- Roasted Baby Carrots
- 2 Green Teas
- Berry Dessert (special)
[highlight]Our bill with tax and tip was no more than $25/person![/highlight] Remember, dinner menus in Los Angeles are quite expensive and an average dinner will run you at least $35 without drinks or dessert.
For appetizers we started with the baby carrots and fries. The carrots were good, but I think next time I will go with the roasted root veggies instead. By now, you now I’m a french fry lover, and I’m happy to report the fries were delicious. The beet salad was also great with the goat cheese; I wish there would have been more beets and goat cheese, less quinoa — that could just be a personal preference though.
The dessert special was the perfect ending to a somewhat healthy meal. Thankfully, we only had one so it gave us each a few bites, which was just the right amount.
We loved the staff + service and know you will too. Also, since it’s summer, I recommend sitting outside because the weather is nice and there are heaters in case you get a bit cold. It’s a great lunch spot as well if you want to soak up as much sun as possible!
