What's open for linner (2-5p) on Saturday in Santa Monica/Venice?

Most people have a great recommendation for brunch, but what about the twilight zone between 2-5p, when they stop serving lunch and aren't ready to serve dinner? Any good ideas for a Saturday afternoon in the Santa Monica/Venice area?

  1. Zengo in the Santa Monica Place seems to be open all day on Saturdays.

    Also, Larry's Venice Beach, right by the boardwalk

    Also, Gjelina's website says weekends 9-midnight, Brunch until 3pm

      Like Santa Monica Seafood, how about one of the C&O's?

    2. Ideal time for a trip to Father's Office.

      1. Gjelina would be my go-to. Chaya Venice, also.

        1. A bit south of Venice, but Humble Potato is pretty easy to get in and out of on a Saturday afternoon (at least last Saturday) and have some really good burgers and sandwiches. Here's my review: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/875524.

          1. Second Gjelina and Chaya. Also Hal's, Venice Beach Wines, Pedals Cafe at Shutters. Btw I think Father's Office in Santa Monica doesn't open until 5 or 5:30 (as opposed to the Culver City location).

              iirc, gjelina serves an abbreviated menu between 3 and 5:30, mostly pizza and charcuterie

                That's right - pizza, cheese & charcuterie, and salads. Had another lovely pizza and salad meal there yesterday at 3:30ish.
