Santa Monica: Open for the first time yesterday was the new location of Santa Monica Seafood. Compared to the original version, not only is the new location larger and more modern but it also has an adjoining cafe, complete with an oyster bar, outdoor patio and everything. As stated earlier, Scott Leibfried—who has worked at Napa Valley Grille and made several television appearances, most notably on Hell's Kitchen—is overseeing the menu, along with Eric Baran. See the gallery above for a photo tour of the shiny new space. 1000 Wilshire Boulevard, at 10th Street; (310) 393-5244; website [EaterWire]
