For those of you who don’t know, California is like my home away from home.  So when my girls took me to Summer House Santa Monica for my birthday brunch, it was love at first sight and taste!I  Created by Lettuce Entertain You, Summer House Santa Monica is a restaurant with a California concept right here in Chicago!  With it’s laid back atmosphere and beach house decor, it really has a west coast feel.

Dining al fresco!



Such a perfect name for the main dining room, because on a nice day, the room is flooded with sunshine!  I just wish there wasn’t an ugly fire alarm sitting in the middle of the wall! haha

Here’s a sneak peek of just one of their fabulous drinks, The Cucumber Cooler ( with Vodka added)!

Food is delicious, fresh, and reflects the season!  Check out their roasted baby beets! Delish!  Don’t you just love the carrera marble tables too, another fav of mine, although I’m a sucker for carrera marble!

Seriously, I think these little bites were definitely the best part of the meal!  Say hello to the Ahi Tuna Tostadas!
