Cassia Opened Over The Weekend… Here’s A Glimpse Inside

Back in October of 2013 I told you about a new eatery arriving to the repurposed and cavernous art deco building at 1314 7th St. in Santa Monica.  At the time, the ABC license listed the place as the 7th Street Bistro.  We all know now that what was coming was the buzz-worthy Cassia.  Easily one of the Westside’s most anticipated openings, Cassia (the name is a reference to an Asian tree that is indestructible) officially threw open its doors on Saturday night, bestowing the culinary blessings of Bryant Ng and Kim Ng (The Spice Table), and Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan (Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry, Milo & Olive) to the good people of Santa Monica.  With pitch-perfect service and astonishingly good food, this little gem is indeed a welcome sight in this neck of the woods.  The menu, “Asian meets French bistro” as we were told, is well executed and includes dishes such as: kaya toast, green papaya salad, chickpea curry, oysters, grilled lobster, whole Singaporean white pepper crab, laksa, and steak frites.  And for dessert?  How about deep fried Paris-brest or Vietnamese coffee pudding…  Walk-ins only at this point and they’ll officially take reservations on June 23rd, but I have it on good authority that the rezzie lines will open this Sunday, June 21st on Opentable.  Trust me, you’ll need them…
