Blue Plate Taco

Blue Plate Taco, 1515 Ocean Avenue (near Colorado Avenue); 310-458-2985.
For several years I have been frequenting two small storefront restaurants in Santa Monica owned by a charming woman named Jennifer Rush Morton, whom I first met years ago when she owned an artisanal pasta company called Divine and I wrote about their superb products. She first opened Blue Plate at 14th St. and Montana (1415 Montana (310) 260-8877) 12 years ago and it immediately caught on as a wonderful breakfast/lunch (now dinner) spot serving comfort food of the highest order (brioche French toast and the like.)
