    Hal's closed two days ago… They will be reopening somewhere else on Abbot Kinney this summer. After 30 years in Venice sad to see them go although comforting to know they'll be back soon.

    Best thing not on the breakfast menu: order jalapeño bacon, English muffin, tomatoes, butter lettuce, over hard eggs and chipotle mayo. Make an egg BLT. Thank me later.

    The only thing better than their Cantaloupe Martini is their Espresso Martini (though, there is one bartender who does it wrong...if it doesn't knock your socks off, you got him).
