Fare with Flare
Opened in 1999, Mélisse by chef/owner Josiah Citrin sits in the heart of Santa Monica. Guests can choose from a four, seven, or ten course menu featuring contemporary American dishes with French influence that change with the seasons and are determined by the haul from weekly trips to the Santa Monica Farmers Market. In addition to the main dining room, Mélisse boasts two private dining areas: the Olivia and Augustin Rooms, offering privacy for groups of all sizes whether an intimate gathering or business event. Awarded two Michelin stars, Josiah Citrin’s Mélisse offers unparalleled service, inventive dishes, and an extensive, world class wine list.
