Fodor's Expert Review Mélisse
Chef-owner Josiah Citrin enhances his modern French cooking with seasonal California produce at this Santa Monica institution. The tasting menu might feature egg caviar with smoked lemon crème fraiche, wild Scottish red partridge with chocolate persimmons, or Kagoshima Wagyu beef rib eye. The cheese cart is packed with domestic and European selections, and the dining room is contemporary yet elegant, with well-spaced tables and fine china. The tasting menu can be tailored for vegetarian diners.
