    The 3 dish tasting menu is waaay too much food. Can't imagine how anyone could handle the 5 dish menu. And that doesn't include the extra desert round at the end 👌🏻

    The cocktails are heavenly. Order a Braveheart (ask for it by name if it's not on the menu) for gingery, limey, scotchy goodness (but not too scotchy, somehow—normally I don't even like scotch!

    Loved the biscuit & gravy! The sage scrambled that comes with os is amazing. So are the potatoes. Very chill ambience—great for a relaxed weekend brunch

    A good spot on Abbott Kinney to eat or grab a drink. Can get a little crowded.

    The Tasting Kitchen still maintains an excellent level of quality. The room is one of the most lovely on the block and the cocktails by Justin Pike stand up to the best in town. Try the pastas. Read more

    The cocktails here are superb, particularly the Braveheart. The pastas tend to be on the saltier side.

    Note: the worst seat in the house is the table by the host stand. Draft from front door and bar spillover crowds you.

    Always a madhouse for brunch, but the fried chicken and waffle are worth the wait.

    A warm roasted grapefruit with mint shavings plus one of the baked goods (muffins, sticky buns, French toast) makes a pretty solid breakfast, paired with a cocktail, of course.

    The best Venice spot for a boozy breakfast. The bloody Mary's are great, but I like the refreshing Cotton Club (cava, camomile, bitters).

    Order the tasting menu and embrace the culture. Maybe buy an overpriced coffee down the street and harass a celebrity.

    My favorite cocktail is the now off-menu Braveheart: scotch, ginger, lemon, honey, a dash of butters, served up. Enjoy!

    Ridiculously small portion of halibut for $35. I thought I liked this place but feel jipped. Tagliarini pasta was delicious.

    The brunches, which include things like short-rib hash and bacon-stuffed waffles with fried chicken, are legend even in brunch-obsessed Venice. Read more

    The food—modern Italian by Portland transplant Casey Lane—is excellent, made even better by the comfortable, leather wrapped Eames chairs, and always kind and attentive service. Read more

    The cocktails and food are amazing. It can take a while to get what you order and service could be better, but I'd still go back anyway because it's just that good.
