The Border Grill, 1445 4th Street, Santa Monica

The Border Grill, 1445 4th Street, Santa Monica

The Border Grill, chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, is one of my favorite restaurants in the Los Angeles area. On my quest for historic architecture in Santa Monica, I discovered the art-deco beauty of the building that their restaurant inhabits.

Although the sign is new, from 1990, it echos the style of the building on which it sits.

And a close look up the facade, you can find the detail and beauty of this building.
