The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica unveils The Penthouse, a spectacular new restaurant and lounge, "where beach cabanas and open skies meet silver bars and open flames". Enjoy the panoramic views of the Pacific, as well as the gorgeous mostly white interior (designed by Thomas Schoos, designer of Koi and TAO New York/Las Vegas). Chef Greenburg presents a menu using ingredients from the Santa Monica farmer's markets combined with unique ingredients from around the world. Try the steak tartar and beef capriccio with crispy capers and truffle-grilled cheese. There's a wide array of specialty cocktails. The cucumber squeeze will definitely tickle your fancy. Grab a cozy curtained cabana in either the lounge or restaurant for a more private setting. But remember they're available on a first come, first served basis.
