Santa Monica's 2nd annual Eat Well Week will be held Jan. 5-12

in conjunction with California Restaurant Month, thanks to the Santa Monica Convention & Visitors Bureau.

During Eat Well Week,

more than a dozen of Santa Monica’s top restaurants will offer

discounted pre-fixe menus and healthy new menu options to kick-off a

healthier 2014.

Several Santa Monica newcomers will join

some of the city’s established favorites to participate in the campaign

with specially crafted Eat Well Week menus.

At the Santa Monica Pier’s

brand-new Al Mare, diners can enjoy a 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 up Tuscan kale salad, roasted beats and

miso-glazed salmon, amongst other nutritious options.

Locanda del Lago’s

Chef Gianfranco’s Eat Well Week menu features 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.
