Punta Cabras

Perfect For: Casual Weeknight Dinner Eating At The Bar

When Tacos Punta Cabras closed last year, Santa Monica lost one of the only real hole-in-the-wall taco spots in the neighborhood. Now, Puntas Cabras is back, but as a full-scale restaurant with an all-day taqueria on one side and a dinner-only space on the other. And it’s great. The tacos are as good as ever (especially the fish), the purple paloma comes with a portrait of Prince clipped to it, and the new, larger dishes (like red snapper with green curry sauce) are fantastic. Sit at the bar where you can order off both menus, get one of those Prince drinks, and know that you’ve found the area’s next great neighborhood spot.
