Riva
(now closed) Mediterranean eats in Santa Monica

From the Fraiche crew, this airy, open-kitchen bistro is bordered by '20s-era plaster facades, and plates of drool-worthy Mediterranean grub: raw crudo (e.g., fluke w/chives & prosecco sabayon); wood-burned pizzas (one w/ potatoes, chives, créme fraîche, and caviar); and entrees like Prime Rib for Two served with bágna cauda -- Italian fondue made with butter, olive oil, garlic, and anchovies, roughly translated as "keep that anchovy away from my prime rib".
