Wilshire Restaurant


Santa Monica has a bevy of fantastic dining spots to frequent, and our latest and greatest dinner was at Wilshire Restaurant with JetSet Tot. I’ve been attracted to their seasonal menu not only because the items are organic, but they are picked from local farmer markets in the area. They claim a “New Urban Style” which made me even more excited to experience Wilshire with Kiddo. We were seated outside on the open air patio near the fireplace and once I glanced at the menu, I knew immediately this was going to be a great fine dining experience.  I just couldn’t decide WHAT to order! Here we go again, I wish I could’ve had a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a whole ‘lotta that… Decisions. Decisions.

Dining with your family at Wilshire Restaurant

When dining with a family, I would recommend an earlier seating. Wilshire Restaurant is definitely appropriate for families looking for a stylish and refined dining experience, but please note, these dishes can be on the mature side for some children. While delicious, and there are plenty of options, items like the macaroni and cheese is baked with spinach, so just keep that in mind if your child is not a lover of ‘greens’. JetSet Tot loved spinach in the homemade dish, and she enjoyed dipping her bread in the remaining cauliflower sauce as well. Oh, the cauliflower with curry, raisins and pistachios! It was one of the best dishes I have tasted recently and I cannot wait for more. Both children and adults alike will love their selection of delicious flatbreads as well.
