 THINGS TO DO @ BeachCalifornia: EAT at Border Grill in Santa Monica
Border Grill owners, Mary Sue Milliken (pictured) and Susan Feniger are known as the dynamic cooking duo. The hands-on chefs are owners of the popular and critically-acclaimed Border Grill restaurants in Santa Monica and Las Vegas, as well as Ciudad in Downtown Los Angeles. They appeared in nearly 400 episodes  “Too Hot Tamales” and “Tamales World Tour” series during a 4-year stint with Food Network from 1995 to 1999. Featured on several radio programs, as well, the chefs recently launched a line of pepper mills, custom dinnerware and glassware, are consultants for United Airlines, who serves their dishes on flights to Mexico, Central and South America and are spokespeople for Whole Foods Market, the largest retailer of organic foods in the world.  With all that on their plate, they have a new series with PBS called “Border Girls”.

Foodies are a demographic of people who travel for the love of a good meal. More than 45 percent of today's food dollar is spent away from home and that number goes up when you travel. The state of California offers nearly 74,000 restaurants and drinking places with top chefs vying for top hat in the California dining market. Everything under the sun can be found, but most interesting is the mix of cultural styles and food preparations seen in California cuisine.
