There’s a rowdy happy hour scene at this relatively new arrival in Santa Monica: Packed out with spacious booths, this has the vibe of an old-school diner, but with a fancy, provenance-driven menu. You’ll find all the standards (hamburgers, big bowl salads, et al), but they’re gussied up and sourced from local farms and purveyors. Though the drinking game is strong, it’s kid friendly (there’s a separate menu, as well as Etch-a-Sketch’s to keep the family busy).
