If you’re looking for special occasion takeout, there’s a new option in town. Starting today, the one-Michelin-starred Santa Monica restaurant Rustic Canyon is open for curbside pickup, offering four- to five-course family style dinners that feed two, four, or six people. This week’s meals all start with lavender almonds and marinated olives and progress to salads and sides and mains like harissa-roasted chicken or flatiron steak with taleggio and roasted tomatoes. For dessert, there’s chocolate budding with preserved kumquat and fennel streusel.https://www.instagram.com/p/B_qHxAaJl5X/
Meals are priced at $49/person and there’s wine, beer and cocktails to add to your meal. Chef/owner Jeremy Fox recently got a James Beard Award nomination for his word at his newer, more casual spot Birdie G’s.
