Looking to try a new restaurant near Venice? Here's a list of Venice restaurants Angelenos and critics love.
4 Venice Restaurants Angelenos Love
1. Sunny SpotLocated in Venice, the colorful Caribbean eatery features bright walls and artsy decor to complement the island-inspired fare. Sunny Spot serves brunch, lunch and dinner, and finger food bites are available during happy hour. The outdoor patio — filled with brightly hued chairs — is an ideal spot to enjoy the restaurant's unique, inventive cocktails.
2. Salt Air
At Salt Air in Venice, Chef Greg A. Daniels' refined yet eclectic bistro fare focuses on fresh seafood and seasonal ingredients. Dishes run the gamut from shareable small plates to hearty whole fish and grilled meats, while classic cocktails and more than a dozen by-the-glass wines are also available. In the airy, brick-walled dining room, skylights fill the space with natural light, and artful details complete the relaxed bohemian vibe.
3. Dudley Market
Dudley Market is a cafe space combining restaurant and retail that seats 20 guests. The restaurant serves seasonal California dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from Chef Jesse Barber. Adjacent to the beach, Dudley Market utilizes windows, exposed brick and communal tables to create its light, rustic space.
Barrique, formerly Ado, is a refreshed version of the Venice favorite with Chef Antonio Mure still at the helm. The elegant Italian restaurant dishes out fresh antipasti, homemade pastas and fresh fish dishes to pair with its extensive wine list. The charming, romantic setting — in a lovely old yellow cottage — is complete with warm candlelit tables and exposed wood beams.
