We were certainly sad to see the original Santa Monica location bite the dust, but the downtown Border Grill is still going strong, and it’s time to take advantage. The large, Financial District location definitely gives off a corporate vibe, but the food holds up. Everything from their ceviche to their carnitas tacos to their skirt steak is worth ordering, and the vibe inside is always very relaxed. And at $30 for unlimited tapas and $8 bottomless mimosas, their brunch situation is very serious.
