Chef Jet Tila, who has battled it out on “Iron Chef America” and opened the buzzy pan-Asian restaurant Wazuzu at the Wynn in Las Vegas, has brought his tasty brand of Asian-fusion comfort food to Santa Monica. Called the Charleston and decked out in snazzy 1930s-era decor, Tila’s new boîte features classic cocktails, live music — including jazz — and short rib tacos. Happy hour, which takes place Mondays through Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m., offers a chance to taste Tila’s food without residual wallet pain. Choose a $7 bacon, egg and cheese flatbread; $2 Korean tacos or $5 Thai sweet and sour hot wings with Sriracha — and more — and wash it all down with $7 craft cocktails or $5 well drinks.
