Like 9am meetings getting canceled and Tom Hanks, dinner at Jonah's Kitchen sounds pleasing to just about everyone. But in reality, this Mexican spot on Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica is best reserved for Happy Hour (and that’s about it). This foliage-filled restaurant bills itself as a "Latin and Caribbean" spot, but the food tastes more like the stuff you'd get from a tourist trap in Cozumel. Sure, you'll sit under faux bougainvilleas and wicker pendant lights, but you'll be subjected to flavorless cochinita pibil, chewy fish ceviche, and dry shrimp tacos. Consider this a solid third choice dinner spot for when you just want to dine out somewhere pleasant that won't offend your picky aunt who finds onions too spicy.
