What do you do after GQ dubs you "The Coolest Block in America”? In the case of Abbot Kinney, you just keep getting cooler. In fact, the hip factor seems to permeate the whole neighborhood. But Venice has always done its own thing. An alternative area since real estate developer Abbot Kinney founded it as the “Venice of America” in 1905, the beach community is distinct for its Italian-inspired canals, the carnival-like Ocean Front Walk and its ever-evolving restaurant scene.

From pioneers like the Rose Café and Joe’s, to vanguard restaurants like Tasting Kitchen and Superba Snack Bar, find out more about one of the best dining neighborhoods in L.A.
