SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 25,2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Taberna Arros y Vi, a
European taberna style restaurant by owner Michael Hide Cardenas (Lazy Ox,

cuisine. Taberna Arros y Vi operates in a charming space with an intimate main
dining room featuring a copper bar, wine barrel bar tables from local Semler
winery, original exposed brick walls, denim banquettes and leather accents

eclectic, earthy, vibrant dishes to the beach.
