Set in the one-time Ox & Son space, Margo’s is an upscale, California-centric concept from On the Verge Hospitality. The rustic space has floor-to-ceiling windows, and serves weekend brunch, lunch, dinner, and cocktails to the Santa Monica masses. The menu features small plates as well as larger, composed dishes with a focus on modern, California-coastal cuisine -- Hamachi crudo, squid toast, lemon-crusted halibut, and lamb saddle among them. The wine list follows suit with majority California labels, and the cocktails are both classic and contemporary with drinks like the Cider House Mules -- vodka, lime, cider, ginger beer, and bitters. Margo’s is classically California with a modern twist on Montana Ave.
