By Lookout Staff
December 24, 2013 -- The Santa Monica Convention & Visitors Bureau (SMCVB) is making it easy to start the year eating healthy with the 2nd annual Eat Well Week.
Between January 5 and 12 more than a dozen local restaurants will be offering discounted pre-fixe menus and healthy new menu options, CVB officials announced Monday.
"Santa Monica chefs take great pride in creating fresh farm-to-table dishes for an audience that has come to expect nothing but California cuisine at its finest," said Misti Kerns, the bureau’s president and CEO.
"We invite you to experience the healthy culinary creations that our local chefs have created for Santa Monica Eat Well Week and join us in celebrating a healthier new year," Kerns said.
Eat Well Week, which is celebrated in conjunction with California Restaurant Month, will offer some new restaurant choices in addition to the established favorites.
They include Santa Monica Pier’s new Al Mare, which will offer pulled chicken breast salad, grilled jumbo shrimp over vegetable cous cous, and pineapple tar-tar with strawberry yogurt sorbet for dessert.
The Viceroy’s rebranded Cast restaurant will be serving Tuscan kale salad, roasted beats and miso-glazed salmon, and other nutritious options.
On the Third Street Promenade, Locanda del Lago’s Chef Gianfranco’s Eat Well Week menu will feature a roasted dorade fillet, aromatic herbs, parsnip puree and sautéed spinach, all created with the freshest organic produce, purchased locally from the Santa Monica farmers’ market.
