La Ventura Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Jeffrey Saad from the Cooking Channel has taken over the long-running Out Take Bistro space in Studio City, transforming it into a Mexican restaurant with contemporary accents, reflected in both the d├ęcor and cuisine. The menu features dishes like coconut milk ceviche, crispy calamari tacos with habanero-pineapple salsa, and duck confit mole, as well as carne asada and whole roasted fish. The bar turns out blackberry margaritas and ginger mojitos.
