No. 10 is a very W 3rd St. restaurant. The dining room is nicely designed, but you don’t really get a sense that a human designed it. The menu is very familiar, and there are bunch of people here who have auditioned for The Bachelor multiple times. It’s also owned by a former soccer player (his number was 10), and and the all-Italian staff are so nice that you won’t be surprised if they pull up a chair halfway through the meal. So while there’s not anything interesting about N10, there’s also nothing offensive about it. The pizzas are made with high-fiber dough (whatever that means), and the pasta is tasty even though it’s a little too al dente. You’ll have a perfectly fine meal here, but there’s no reason to eat here if you don’t have to.

Mercado isn’t the best Mexican you’ll ever eat. But it's right downtown Santa Monica and after a day of misery at the pier, you simply don't care.
