Barnyard Venice Set to Open February 1st

The restaurant, which will be open from Tuesday thru Saturday from 5:30pm – 11pm to start, promises “a soulful and rustic menu of small and shared plates, small-production wines and beers” centered around meats and fish with “Mediterranean and Japanese flavors and textures”. House-made sausages, slow-cooked stocks and seasonal produce will be featured.

Barnyard is headed up by chef Jesse Barber, who previously worked in Venice as “Chef de Cuisine” at the Tasting Kitchen for three years. Prior to that, Barber spent the previous decade cheffing it up in Oregon (Decarli and Blue Hour in Portland, Marche in Eugene) and training as garde manger, oyster bar and commis with Tomas Keller at the French Laundry.

The restaurant is gunning for the restaurants on Abbot Kinney, boldly claiming on their website:

When GQ Magazine declared Abbot Kinney the “hippest street in the US”, you knew it was time to grab your appetite, take your name off those wait-lists, and start looking elsewhere for the soul of Venice. Head to Windward and Pacific, where the soul can always be found. Jammed with surfers, tourists and vintage shops, southwest Venice is quickly being leased up – by hipsters, ITs and VCs.

The Barnyard website notes that it is “fully remodeled, the space is light, airy and open to the Pacific breeze, with modern, yet rustic interiors. The back patio is surrounded by greenery, with sofas and a community table encouraging groups to gather”.
