This week, dine out in a new Santa Monica abode and discover a shop that will help you find that one-of-a-kind gift.
You want light cuisine that still leaves you satisfied? Your wish is our command, and that’s why this week we bring you Abode Restaurant and Lounge in Santa Monica. An updated 60s décor pairs perfectly with their contemporary dishes, including mini sandwiches and melt-in-your-mouth sea scallops. You’ll want to ditch your abode for this one.

Why travel for that one-of-a-kind item when there’s a local boutique that does all the work for you? Algabar on La Brea is the destination for all your gifting needs.

Not only will your gift have a story to tell, but your shopping experience will too.
