In Phoenix, the original La Grande Orange, a bistro-ish place with a knack for deviled eggs, is often described as a California-style restaurant. But transplanted into Santa Monica, La Grande Orange also feels like somewhere else- the kind of swank, suburban patio living that appears more in Sunset than it does in local restaurants. Although the cocktails are professional grade, the cooking is strictly by-the-pool stuff: Brussels-sprout salad with cranberries, fried chicken with mashed potatoes, grilled-chicken nachos, and what tastes like a catering-kitchen version of the olive-oil cake at Pizzeria Mozza. But the restaurant is open early and late and mixes a splendid martini.
