Recently opened Abbot Kinney restaurant specializing in farmer’s market fresh American contemporary cuisine. Still hammering out the service kinks but a delicious addition to the neighborhood. Their vegetable dishes are especially fine. Gjelina serves beer and wine. Best make a reservation — Gjelina’s “in” this summer.

On the border of Venice and Marina del Rey at Washington Blvd and the beach, the Terrace opens early and keeps serving ’til late (full dinners ’til 1am!). There’s a covered outdoor area that’s popular for dining at all times of the day or night. The cafe serves everything from Poached Salmon “Odessa Style” (the owner is Russian), to Maine Lobster to Omaha Steaks. And the drinks, well, they’re strong.
Hours:
Daily 8am – 2am (serving full dinner ’til 1am!)
