Creation Grill, the replacement for Vanilla Bean Eats on Ocean Park and 29th, is an attractively designed Mediterranean eatery that incorporates on trend details like weathered wood, subway tile, and exposed brick. As do many of the local restaurants these days. Eiman Shekarchi of Shekarchi and The Sidewalk Grill is behind this westside operation, and much like the aforementioned two restaurants, here he's serving a bevy of Mediterranean staples like kabob plates and wraps, tabouleh, hummus, in addition to kale and quinoa. The restaurant is tweaking its menu at the moment (should be posted online tonight), but here's the bill of fare that has been served up to now. While Shekarchi doesn't have a liquor license, he's thinking about acquiring one down the line, or at least utilizing Santa Monica's BYOB program. For now choose from Intelligentsia coffee drinks, soda, iced tea, and lemonade.
