THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hal's Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Hal's is a friendly neighborhood hangout that truly reflects the current Venice scene, where bohemian and cosmopolitan themes coexist. A selection of contemporary creations by local artists graces the walls, the 40-foot bar caters to a diverse crowd, and the stylish but laid-back dining room is a fine backdrop to fare that features simple Californian and continental fare. The regularly changing menu might include individual-sized pizzas with toppings such as squash blossoms, fresh burrata and yellow tomato, as well as a starter of grilled baby artichokes with garlic aïoli. Entrées range from Copper River salmon with sautéed king oyster mushrooms to a roast pork chop and Long Island duck breast accompanied by gnocchi. Hal's signature hamburger is served with extra-crispy fries, and sides like seared tofu and fresh polenta can be added to meals. On weekends, a basket of biscuits and muffins is served with the leisurely brunch. Desserts are simple by satisfying with options like apple pie, lemon-verbena pound cake, and pear-cranberry bread pudding. There is also a California-focused wine list, and jazz on Sundays and Mondays.
