Despite its close proximity to the ocean,Venice has lacked a quality seafood restaurant for some time now. That’s changed thanks to the recent opening of Salt Air on busy Abbot Kinney Boulevard, a beachy new bistro from Dave Reiss, the dude behind hits such as A-Frame and littlefork. With a soothing white and tan decor, comfy bench seating, and pillows scattered about, eating at Salt Air is as relaxing as a visit to the seaside itself. On the adorable hand-lettered menu is an upscale assortment of culinary delights, from the usual suspects (fish & chips, raw oysters, lobster rolls) to the unexpected (fish skin chips with harissa, carrot & fennel salad, veggie burgers). Try a passionfruit Shandy made with sour beer, or simply order a nice bottle of wine. There’s something for everyone at this newly opened gem, with brunch coming soon! —Ashley Churchill
