Whether you are an artist, hippie, lawyer or celebrity, it’s safe to say that this area is welcoming no matter what your niche is. For one eatery in Venice that epitomizes how diverse this area truly is, try James’ Beach.
Located at 60 North Venice Boulevard, this dining establishment caters to virtually every type. When you dine here, you’ll enjoy some of the best American comfort food around. Forget the idea that this type of cuisine is going to make you feel overly stuffed after eating it (although you’ll definitely leave feeling satisfied!). James’ Beach uses the freshest ingredients, so that Fontina Mac ‘n’ Cheese you are thinking about ordering is sure to be a far cry from anything you’d find in the supermarket.
The prices are reasonable and the portions are bountiful. Try a few dishes if you are feeling hungry. The yellow and red beet salad will change how you think about vegetables and will certainly turn you into a fan of all things healthy. The crispy calamari is equally delicious. Coated in a thyme buttermilk mixture, this meal is served with homemade chipotle aioli and grilled lemon. The Swimsuit Special is also a popular option. It comes with steamed veggies, brown rice, gazpacho salsa and either grilled chicken, mahi mahi or tofu, proving that food that is good for your health can be full of flavor!
This restaurant is also open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sleep in late and come in to enjoy light and fluffy pancakes or the Farmer’s Breakfast, which is served with eggs, pork link sausage, a pancake and home-fried potatoes. You even have the option of ordering delivery if you don’t feel like leaving your Venice beach rental.
