Helmed by chef owner Bryant Ng with his wife Kim and Zoe Nathan and Josh Loeb (of Rustic Canyon fame), Cassia marries the fresh and vibrant flavors and culinary traditions of Southeast Asia with the warm and soulful hospitality of a neighborhood California brasserie. The downtown Santa Monica hotspot has won over the hearts and stomachs of Angelenos and diners further afield, including Pete Wells, who awarded Cassia the New York Times’ first three star review outside of the New York metropolitan area. Parties of all sizes can enjoy a family style meal of Singaporean-Chinese and Vietnamese-inspired dishes, using ingredients sourced from local farms.
A minimal private dining room tucked off the side of the kitchen offers a beautiful walnut table that comfortably seats up to twenty guests. For an al fresco option, the patio corridor likewise accommodates up to twenty seated guests.
The wine room, styled after the airy minimalist dining room with concrete and blond wood accents, seats up to 30 guests, while the patio offers heated outdoor seating for up to 45.
