Both Citrin and Arrington frequent the weekly Farmers' Market in Santa Monica, where they select the restaurant's produce and establishing relationships with farmers from the outlying regions of Los Angeles.

Opened in July 2009, Cache creates a relaxed, indoor-outdoor ambiance. The clean and modern design highlights natural materials, using white walls, dark mahogany and teak flooring, combining them with concrete, stainless steel and fieldstone surfaces.

The outdoor bar and lounge, with its retractable awnings and fire-pit, can accommodate all-weather dining and three cabanas encased in fieldstone sit adjacent to the garden lounge for intimate and private dining.

In an effort to make world-class art widely available and expand awareness of the Southern California art scene, Cachee is collaborating with Aldis Browne Fine Arts of Santa Monica to organize regularly changing exhibits by prominent and emerging local artists displayed in the dining room. A! new exhibit of work by local artists Ed Moses and Paris Paulin opens on November 16, 2009.

Cache brings a vibrant mood to Main Street and is open nightly for dinner and for weekend brunch. Cache's wine list includes over 200 selections of new and old-world vintages, with an exclusive library from the owners' private collection. Cache offers full bottle service along with classic and house cocktails emphasizing fresh squeezed juices, muddled herbs and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
