Debuting in a Pandemic, These Restaurants Are Ready for Whatever LA’s Future Dining Scene Looks Like

Angie and Daniel Kim opened Interstellar in Santa Monica the first week of April. The Kims envisioned their first restaurant as a daytime hub for locals and tourists seeking fancy coffee and global fare, with a menu including dishes like a Moroccan-inspired harissa pappardelle and a Japanese branzino ochazuke alongside cappuccinos and pastries.
