A Venice Beach mainstay since 1979, the Rose Venice was purchased and revamped in 2015 by chef Jason Neroni, formerly of the restaurant Superba, just a few blocks away. The ample two-story space includes, among other divisions, a market, a coffee bar, a liquor boutique, and an outdoor beer garden. But the climax here, of course, is the restaurant itself, dedicated to contemporary Southern California cuisine influenced by Neroni’s world travels. The fried-egg-and-juniper-bacon breakfast sandwich is particularly popular among early risers, and the roasted jidori chicken and butternut-squash agnolotti are not to be missed after 5 p.m. Don’t hesitate to dress casually for an engagement here: the interior, developed by Studio UNLTD, captures the bohemian-chic vibe for which Venice Beach is known, and includes a Craig Stecyk-designed wall plastered with historic posters from the neighborhood.
