Cadet

2518 Wilshire Blvd
Santa Monica, California
310-828-3300
It's possible to have an utterly lovely meal at Cadet, sitting in the gorgeous, wood-lined room, anchored by a square bar, with mismatched French country-chic chairs and the wood stove burning in view off to one side. There are so many whimsical touches here that it's easy to be seduced: the menus printed on large note cards that you shuffle through to get to each section; the curlicued vintage silverware; the cocktails, which each come in three variations — classic, French and "Cadet" — an array that takes us from the American original, through a lighter, more elegant French version, to a modern take. --Besha Rodell Read our full review of Cadet.
