Crudo e Nudo

18th – 22nd April

Santa Monica’s hottest neighbourhood seafood joint, Crudo e Nudo is the pop-up-turned-restaurant success story by chef Brian Bornemann and partner Leena Culhane. 

After meeting in 2020 and bonding over a love of surfing, sustainability, and simple, honest food, the pair launched Crudo e Nudo as a series of sell-out supper clubs and pop-ups, showcasing the freshest local fish and seafood they could get their hands on. By the following year, the couple had secured their first bricks-and-mortar site, transforming a tiny former juice bar into one of the city’s most popular restaurants almost overnight. 

From their dainty space on Main Street, the duo serve picture-perfect plates of seasonally-changing, sustainably-caught delights, cleverly brought to life by Brian’s imaginative, globally-inspired flavour combinations. Smash hits like his ‘rockfish crudo, mandarin oil, white soy, urfa biber, chives’; ‘tuna tartare toasts, onion confit, sesame, yuzu’; and ‘fried fish collar with charred lemon, citrus vinaigrette & herbs’ have catapulted this local favourite to critical success, placing it firmly on the Santa Monica food map. 

We can’t wait for Brian and Leena to join us for five nights of Californian-style ocean-to-table magic.
