Gourmet Italian deli/cafe at Ocean Front Walk and Rose. Fancier fare than most of what you’ll find on the boardwalk. Pricier, too.

Classic family diner you have to fight your way into weekend mornings. It’s worth it.

Lebanese. Good food. Casual. Sit outside. Service sometimes slow.

Heinous on the outside, not much better in, the Whaler can be a rowdy bummer…or, when the crowds aren’t around, a nice place for an ocean view brew.

Cadillac margarita, chocolate souffle, civilized dining, meat-market weekend nights.

The Terrace Cafe on 012 2008

by doglord | ˜ No Comments »

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!)

One of my favorite restaurants in Venice. Delicious and healthy comfort food from all corners of the globe, sort of. The name is pronounced “ah-shay.” The Fred Siegel-clad clientele may not know where to shop for clothes, but they clearly know where to go to eat. Austere vibe, great food that’s not cheap, terminally casual crowd.

Sidewalk Cafe on 011 2008

his longtime boardwalk staple is colorfully situated with an outdoor patio right on Ocean Front Walk. Be prepared for a show — or lots of shows — while you eat. There’s a bar inside, but eating al fresco is the attraction of this place. The food is unremarkable but familiar. Be sure to go to Small World Books in the back corner of the restaurant, it’s a Venice jewel.
Open daily: 8am – 11pm
Happy hour: 4pm – 7pm weekdays
