Last weekend my girls and I stumbled into Larry’s Venice, having no idea what deliciousness was awaiting us. Our Yelp iphone app led us to a spot we immediately denied but the spot next door, Larry’s caught our eye. We read “truffle fries” on the menu and saw that they had beer & wine, so it was a no brainer at that point. After the difficult decision of where we’d sit, we finally cozied up with our menus, mouths agape simply with the prospect of having something cold to drink. Three glasses of Sangria, a Beerlini and a Coco Cabana (mine) were ordered. Being quite the particular with my alcoholic beverages, I was nervous about whether my choice was right – this is one of the few areas of my life where doubt exists, mind you. Made with soju, lime, mint, and coconut cream, the CC resulted in perfection liquified. Next time I want to be transported by way of a drink from L.A. to somewhere vacation worthy, I will think of Larry’s, just steps from the Venice Boardwalk.
On to the Lunch Menu. Something light was necessary, as the night before I hit it hard at Colori Kitchen. I ordered the Niçoise salad, prepared with large bites of seared ahi tuna and the usual flavors. Eating fish by the beach is always such a giggly treat for me! The salad was legit and with crispy fries from surrounding plates passing my lips, it made for memorable lunch. If you’re looking for something on the lighter side The star of the show though was no doubt the Organically Fried Chicken Baguette topped with a fried egg and bacon. I never met an egg I didn’t like – just look at that beaut!
Until next time Larry’s, I’m looking forward to you surprising me once more.
