Sirena Opens in Santa Monica

The highly anticipated Sirena is now open at The Georgian, perched above the Santa Monica waterfront on Ocean Avenue and dishing up Italian Californian cuisine.

Sirena at The Georgian, which has been a fixture of the Southern California coastline since 1933, is helmed by Executive Chef David Almany. Chef Almany’s Italian Californian menu features an emphasis on fresh seafood, locally sourced produce, unique ingredients flown in weekly from around the world, an extensive wine list curated by sommelier Kristin Olszewki, and a dessert and pastry program by Chef Thessa Diadem. At Sirena, Chef Almany–who has worked with famed Chef Nancy Silverton–has composed a thoughtfully curated menu for brunch, spuntini and dinner.

“The culinary program at Sirena is defined by the quality of its products,” says Chef Almany, in a press release. “The Georgian is steps away from the Santa Monica farmers market and alongside access to some of the best seafood, we will be highlighting the simple dining style that both Los Angeles and the Amalfi Coast are known for. Think bucatini with a light sauce of lemon, chilis and basil or a simple grilled branzino with a fresh herb salad and some of the best olive oil you’ve ever tasted.” 

The breakfast and lunch menu entices with a variety of indulgent delights, such as a croissant French toast soufflé or Evergreen Omelette, while the dinner menu spotlights incredible dishes like Linguine Vongole Amalfitano and Jumbo Scallops Alla Piccata. Chef Diadem’s dessert menu features coconut budino, a divine tiramisu and more mouthwatering options.

The beverage bill includes craft cocktails, an extensive spirits list with a special emphasis on Italian digestivi, locally brewed beers and non-alcoholic options inspired by the heritage of Santa Monica. Wine Director Olszewski’s wine list was developed through a similar Italian heritage to the culinary program, marrying a wide ranging showcase of Italian excellence alongside the best bottles of Southern California.
