Rustic Canyon is Josh Loeb's first restaurant out of the many restaurants he now is a part of (i.e. Cassia, Sweet Rose Creamery, Milo and Olive, etc). The name stems from the mountains of Santa Monica where his family's house is situated. It is a place where the decor is rustic and the food is seasonal with plates meant to be shared.
The former executive chef of Ubuntu Jeremy Fox is now the executive chef of Rustic Canyon. His perception for Rustic Canyon is to bring simplicity and freshness while encompassing seasonal ingredients.
The restaurant can be bustling at all hours of the day. The menu seems innovative enough. Unfortunately, many of the dishes lacked robustness and refinement.
|HOMEMADE FOCACCIA, BURRATA, AND BEET MOLASSES ($15.00): The bread was good and tasted fairly fresh. The burrata was nice and creamy and the molasses offered a bit of sweetness to the dish. Overall, it was good but nothing special.|
|POLENTA THAT COMES WITH THE PORK CHOP: Absolutely delicious and creamy|
Notable dishes: Pork Chop
