So Bret and I went to Danny’s Venice Deli the other night – I had been wanting to go there since it opened in March, even after hearing mixed reviews. Bret said “Where’s that? How come I’ve never heard of it?”
At 8pm, the small bar had a good number of people but the restaurant was…well we had a large choice of where to sit, I’ll just say that. And I’m not sure why – I thought the food was good. I mean – I had grilled cheese and french fries, not exactly a complicated meal – but as someone who eats a lot of grilled cheese, I thought it was one of the better grilled cheeses I’ve had. And the fries were great. Bret had a club sandwich – he liked it. It was so huge that he took half home to have for lunch the next day. Our other friend had a roastbeef sandwich – with extremely hot horseradish. (Warning: the horseradish is painfully hot!)
Service was good, food was good, I thought the decor was fun. But why so empty? My guess is that, like Bret, many people just don’t know it’s there. So…here’s my post about it…now you know!
Danny’s Venice Deli is located at 23 Windward Avenue. 310-566-5610
