Venice restaurant gift card

  • 7
  • Share

I would like to get a gift card for some friends who just got married and just bought a house in Venice. I don't live in the area so could use some recommendations for a place with fantastic food, no real cuisine restrictions. Ideal ambiance would be intimate, friendly, casual, possibly romantic but doesn't have to be. Thanks!

    2. I'd throw in The Tasting Kitchen on Abbot Kinney as well:

      1. I'd go with Gjelina or The Tasting Kitchen. I've had great dinners at both. Someone just gave me a gift card to Gjelina and I was thrilled to receive it. I've never been to Joe's.

          If for anything, check out Joe's Restaurant out of respect for starting the serious dining scene on Abbot Kinney. Their weekday lunch menu is a bargain...

            Thanks, I have to check it out. It's been on my mind for a while, just haven't gotten around to it yet!

              Joe has always set a high standard. The kitchen was a revolving door for a little while, but I think they're back on track now.
