The food presentation at One Pico, the ocean-view restaurant in Santa Monica, is fresh and uncomplicated. Each dish is carefully plated so that it’s visually enticing while still staying true to the flavors of the dish. A fresh piece of fish might be served on a round plate on a bed of vibrant spinach. A starter of grilled octopus may come on an extra wide round shallow bowl with the charred octopus carefully placed on a layer of warm potatoes. Overall, the fresh ingredients are allowed to shine and everything is presented with care using a variety of dishware, heights, textures and color contrasts. We think you’ll find the food presentation as striking as the setting at One Pico.
