We visited a most interesting new restaurant in Santa Monica. It is named HB Daisy and shows an truly contemporary menu. All this thanks to Owner Chef John Schenk who brought forty years of culinary experience to Daisy.
Originally from New York John Schenk has worked his way across the U.S., starting in New York, then San Francisco, Florida and a restaurant at Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas.
At HB Daisy Chef Schenk has developed new recipes for both lunch and dinner like Butter Poached Lobster Roll, Salmon Chermoule or Swordfish Pollard.
Everything on the menu is displayed in showcases, deli style including salads like Asian chicken salad or Caprese salad. Hot sandwiches like HB Daisy Turkey Cubano or fried buttermilk chicken breast or the all day breakfast Burrito.
Here there is a large menu of Vegetarian dishes and sandwiches as well. Chef Schenk pays particular attention to taking true farm flavors to the table.
In decor Daisy shows many windows for an open, spacious look and the ambiance is definitely casual.
HB Daisy is located at 1705 Ocean avenue in Santa Monica. Open seven days a week from 7 a.m.
