Contrary to its name, you won’t have any problems fitting in at swank gastropub The Misfit Restaurant + Bar in Santa Monica. You and your friends will feel like you’re on a grand stage when you hunker up to the bar, adorned with big theatrical curtains. Make a plan to come in the daylight. You can ham it up as you grab a stool and take advantage of the bargain special “Bar Fly Lunch,” served weekdays until 4pm. Late afternoon’s a great time to be at The Misfit, especially since the place is so jam-packed on the weekends. Grab a menu, take the reins, and order a round of delicious–if curiously-named–cocktails for all your castmates. Show your sense of irony by greeting one of the ladies with a Goodnight Emily, an intriguing mixture of gin, grapefruit, mint, and bitters. Or put on your happiest face and pass along the Clown Door, made with Belle Meade Bourbon, blood orange, and cinnamon. The fresh draft list is long and smart, with some of the best brews California has to offer. You can soak it all up with rotating Bar Fly specials like ahi tuna, crispy chicken sandwiches, or the house’s grass-fed burger. With a life like this—midday in sunny Los Angeles with comfort food and cocktails laid out before you—you’ll all feel like you’ve landed in the perfect place. At The Misfit, you never feel left out.
