The next time you are in Santa Monica, make sure you go to Catch in the Casa Del Mar Hotel to enjoy a perfectly prepared Branzino while sitting and the mother of pearl inlaid bar. The seafood is as fresh as the air off of the ocean, and the sushi chef will not disappoint. He was so accommodating prepared a special tuna with sliced jalapenos. Delish!
Tucked into a discrete cul-de-sac, away from the boardwalk and embraced by Santa Monica Bay, lies the classic splendor that is Hotel Casa del Mar. Once an exclusive beach club in the 1920’s, the lobby’s original cascading stairwell and beautifully inlaid medallion flooring leads into the lobby’s original soaring ceiling and dramatic windows overlooking the surf.
