I invite you to experience the superlative tastes and atmosphere at one of the most delightful restaurants I’ve been to in some time. Heroic Deli and Wine Bar is a relatively new spot in Santa Monica, California. Owners Carlo and Jeffrey warmly welcome you into their world, with impeccably constructed dishes, scrumptious homemade potato chips, and a large, impressive selection of wines and side dishes. Don’t let the deli name fool you. While it may be an elegantly casual spot, don’t let its unique and straightforward menu confuse you. This is chef driven cuisine of the highest order.
