The latest addition to Santa Monica’s budding restaurant boom, Upper West, has already proven itself as a delicious and unique eatery in town with the help of pioneering chef, Nick Shipp. Infusing bold, flavors into down-home Americana cuisine, this very reasonably priced restaurant gives patrons wanting a hearty, yet distinctive meal more than their money’s worth with every bite.
Don’t let the name fool you: eating at this loft-like casual restaurant is more like stepping into a Brooklyn bar than dining at Jean Georges on Central Park West. That said, the food here is surprisingly good thanks to chef Nick Shipp. The menu borrows from the winning formula he used at his former stomping grounds at Pete’s downtown, where he won over just about every loft dweller
At Upper West, we serve modern American cuisine that’s as familiar and comforting, as it is original and inventive. Our Executive Chef, 31-year-old Nicholas Shipp, brings a wealth of culinary experience to this Santa Monica establishment. Shipp has created an enticing, well-blended mix of tastes, aromas and flavors to help set this Santa Monica restaurant apart from all the rest!
