You don’t have to make reservations at an exclusive restaurant or spend a fortune to have a romantic night out. Sometimes, simple is best: delicious food and a pleasant atmosphere topped off with exceptional dessert. You’ll find all three and great prices at M Street Kitchen in Santa Monica. Surprise your significant other on a random night with a spontaneous trip to this quaint spot just a block from the beach. The atmosphere is casual, so you can show off your style without getting too fancy. Settle in at a table in the tastefully decorated dining room, or head out to the patio to gaze at the stars as you sip sangria. There are heating lamps if it’s a bit chilly, and the weather will give you an excuse to snuggle close. The menu is filled with organic choices, perfect for any health-conscious lifestyle. You won’t get weighed down nibbling on signature miso-glazed salmon roll sushi, or an Evil Thai Princess Salad with chicken, peanut, and lemongrass. When it’s time for dessert, walk over to the bakery and indulge in a favorite treat. The cookies are enormous and the best around, with unique choices like chocolate chip topped with Rice Krispies Treats, or soft and chewy apple oatmeal. Take them to go, and stroll along the beach. The moon is the only light you’ll need, and you never need reservations for that.
