Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen grew from a series of dinners hosted by founder Josh Loeb inside his beautiful home in Rustic Canyon, set in the mountains of Santa Monica. Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen is an extension of this – a neighborhood wine bar and restaurant where friends can come together and celebrate the best things in life: great food, great wine and great people. It offers an extensive wine list to pair with menu items such as a Black Mission fig crostini and dandelion chocolate cake.
