1 - Dinner Plans: One Pico's New Menus
Enjoy chef Sven Mede’s new farm-to-table menu paired with oceanfront views at One Pico.

Shutters on the Beach’s fine-dining establishment, One Pico, just received menu makeovers from By the Blue Sea’s restaurant group managing chef, Sven Mede. The restyled offerings reflect Mede’s commitment to seasonal, farmer’s market cuisine, and will continue to be updated in accordance with what’s available from local markets.

Served in One Pico’s stunning beachfront dining room, the light, California cuisine reflects the restaurant’s ocean surroundings. Under the market plates section, diners can find a fresh red Russian kale salad featuring toasted almonds and blood orange vinaigrette, or a cucumber gazpacho with avocado, radish, and croutons. Meanwhile, appetizers focus on seafood, such as an organic salmon crudo, grilled Pacific shrimp, and pan-seared calamari. Mains are also seafood-centric, with some standouts including a cornmeal-crusted local rock fish—though meaty items like a double Kurobata pork chop, and Creekstone Farm New York strip should not be overlooked.

Mede has also re-imagined the lunch menu, which comprises many of the same market plates, as well as entrée salads like a seared tuna nicoise with arugula, green beans, olives, piquillo peppers, potato, and quail egg. Reservations for both lunch and dinner are recommended by calling the restaurant at 310-587-1717. 1 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica
