The Shore Hotel Will Also Taste Great, Thanks to Blue Plate Taco
Just yesterday after we learned how good The Shore Hotel in Santa Monica will smell, we learned how good the place will taste. The hotel, opening on October 1, has announced that Blue Plate Taco will be the restaurant that's serving up lunch and dinner to guests and non-guests seven days a week.
As the restaurant's name suggests, menu options will include tacos like the mouthwatering Lobster Truffle Tacos but also salads, grilled seafoods and meats and ceviches, all served with the restaurant's homemade tortillas. Also homemade? The margaritas flowing from Blue Plate Taco's full bar. Not a marg person? It's ok, the restaurant promises ice cold Mexican beer too.
Blue Plate Taco is actually the third restaurant from the Blue people as they already operate Blue Plate Oysterette just a few clicks north on Ocean Avenue and celeb fave brunch spot, Blue Plate, on Montana Avenue, also in Santa Monica. (IOHO: Blue Plate Oysterette is loads better than Blue Plate.)
The restaurant will seat about 70 guests, split between the indoor dining room and a communal-style patio adjacent to the pool. The only bummer? Blue Plate Taco is not set to open until Spring 2012. Fortunately, Santa Monica is not running out of Mexican food anytime soon so there are plenty of other options nearby.
