The Yard in Santa Monica

The Yard, the popular neighborhood gastropub in downtown Santa Monica, celebrates both its brand new look and menu while welcoming celebrity chef Chris “CJ” Jacobson of Bravo’s hit cable TV show “Top Chef.” The grand re-opening celebration is scheduled to take place Tues. Nov. 10, 2009. This fully hosted extravaganza will consist of a complementary smorgasbord of hand-crafted specialty drinks, mouth-watering American-style tapas, live entertainment, and meet-n-greets with Chef CJ.

“The Yard was started around the idea of creating community around the Arts and Westsiders, in general, at an underground location that ran for two and half fun, crazy years,” says Sean Norris, owner of The Yard. “Now that we have CJ on board at our great new location, we have all the elements of what I like best in a restaurant - outstanding food and drinks served in a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere.”
