Cherrywood tables, commissioned oil paintings, dark pine floors, antique-brass curtain rods, and damask-patterned banquettes all contribute to the vintage, Parisian bistro-inspired ambiance at Sam's by the Beach, which Gayot hailed as, "one of Santa Monica’s best-kept secrets." This Old-World spirit also influences the restaurant's menu of upscale provincial cooking. By borrowing techniques and flavors from Turkey, Italy, the South of France, and beyond, the chefs imbue their cuisine with a distinctive Mediterranean character.
