  1. Venice Wines has good food, but small menu. The place on Main Street (name always escapes me) behind Peets in SM (Edgmar Center) also has good food. Otheroom on Abbot Kinney has great wines and great prices by the bottle, and you can bring in food from 3 Square. Primitivo is another idea.

      Think you might mean Salute which is a very good choice. Upper West could also be a good option.

      Upper West
      3321 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404

        Yes, Salute! Thanks. Upper West is fantastic. Another idea would be Upstairs, at the Wine House on Cotner.

      1. AOC?

        1. Vinoteque on Melrose is solid and has good prices on their wines, too. Food is OK, but wine is more the draw, probably.

          For better food, consider Gjelina, which is less wine bar and more restaurant. Reservations there may be tough for the evening at this point, but worth a try depending on your timing.

          Vinoteque on Melrose
          7469 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046

          1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, USA

              Lou is closed on Sundays. I thought Lou also but checked and no go. Great place, though!
