Between the beach and the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica is Bar Pinxto, Chef and Restaurateur Joe Miller’s comfortable tapas bar. The restaurant has tall bar tables, outdoor seating for sunny days, an open kitchen in the front, and wine bottles lining the walls. Chef de Cuisine Rob Trestor cooks straightforward Spanish food that hits the spot, from simply prepared Santa Barbara Prawns to classic, well-executed paella. Bar Pinxto offers a number of interesting Spanish wines, including a nice selection of Txakoli and Albarinos, to match the food.
