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)
