Seasalt Grill, you are a lovely addition to Santa Monica! Although I no longer live in SM and therefore, cannot readily benefit from such gems as this, I am still happy that the Westside can have access to fresh seafood at affordable prices. Or as they say, "[t]he ocean's alternative to fast food."
Their menu is full of great choices, 90% of which is seafood. There are non-seafood items as well, but if you're not a fan of seafood, even when battered and fried in wonderful spices, this place is probably not going to be your favorite.
The salad options sound, look, and taste delicious!
|Citrus Quinoa Kale -- citrus-infused kale with quinoa, roasted Brussel sprouts, tomatoes, granny smith apples, raspberries, homemade crotons, Cotija cheese, and honey dijon mustard -- $8.99; with salmon -- $11.99|
|Nice piece of grilled salmon, with a kick!|
|The Louie Louis -- with grilled shrimp, hearts of palm, avocado relish, tomatoes, edamame, cucumber, roasted peppers, red onions, cilantro, Cotija cheese, and house dressing -- $8.99; with shrimp -- $10.99|
The salad portions are big, prices are reasonable, ingredients are fresh, and the fish, yes, the fish is mmm, mmm, good. So tasty! Though I opted to be healthier this time, the fried shrimp po'boy is definitely going in my stomach next time.
For those who want to avoid crowds, order online. For those feeling especially lazy or unable to leave the house, use Seamless. If you're not feeling fishy, check out its next door neighbor, Seasalt Country Kitchen - "Home cooking while not at home." Gotta love options!
