Californian in Santa Monica

This LA-born fast-casual mini-chain sources ingredients from local, sustainable producers and serves them in cheery, fuss-free fashion. Get proteins (chipotle barbecue chicken, backyard steak, falafel etc) in plates with veggies and sides, salads loaded with California's bounty or tasty sandwiches. Drinks (mint lemonade and a veggie-packed green monster) are made in-house, and even the craft brews and wines are Californian.
