Sunny Spot, Venice, CA

Sunny Spot Restaurant Review

: At Venice's Sunny Spot, a venture from veteran restaurateur Dave Reiss, the focus is on the bold flavors of the Caribbean. Guests are greeted by an industrial-looking front dining area with high-top metallic tables. The more formal dining room can be found in the back, along with the Rum Bar. Roy Choi, the chef who started the food truck craze with Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go, oversaw the menu for the first few years, but he has since moved on. Starters and salads include a jerk chicken Cobb salad, ceviche and fried calamari, while larger plates range from Jamaican roasted lamb to curry poached snapper. One mustn't skip the sweet and salty fried plantains to accompany the meal. And for dessert, the coconut crème brûlée is served with tarragon lime syrup. There are a few wines and beers, but it's best to try the imaginative rum concoctions.
