I am currently staying with family in Santa Monica. Right down the street from us, on the south side of Wilshire between 20th and 21st streets, is the Veggie Grill. This is a new vegetarian/vegan restaurant, and last night we had a take out meal from them. Their food is fantastic, and my "cheeseburger" was as delicious, juicy and fattening-tasting as anything I have ever had. I accompanied it with sweet potato fries and some delicious pomegranite green tea. Worth a visit, and there is parking.
