This spot boasts excellent American food on one of the best streets in Venice. Rustic wood paneled ceilings and Edison light bulb chandeliers scream farm-to-table industrial chic at this hot spot. Go there knowing that chef Travis Lett has a strict “no substitution” policy, and you should try to snatch a seat on the beautiful outdoor patio. Make a Reservation.
