5 Restaurants That Get Locals Out of Los Angeles

January 13th, 2012 No Comments

I wrote this article for the Huffington Post a few weeks ago.  Below are five hot spots on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA that are absolutely worth the drive out of central Los Angeles.

As I say in the intro, “Coincidentally, each seems like a San Fran farm-to-table transplant with intriguing dishes and minimal decor to house their savvy diners. Don’t be deceived by the laid back locale, reservations are absolutely required in advance: We are, in fact, still in LA.”

  • Intelligencia Coffee
  • Gjelina (Ja-lee-na)
  • Axe (a-shay)
  • Tasting Kitchen
  • Lemonade (a smaller one lives in Brentwood too)

Click here to see the slideshow of my snapshots along with a short description of what you’ll discover at each venue.
