Venice/Abbot KennyI personally would pass on Jerry's, but there a quite a few other places to eat.
If you are in the Venice area, take a walk along Abbot Kenny Blvd. Primitivo is a great stop for a small bite and sangrias, primitivowinebistro dot com Pricey, but worth it. For a more formal dinning (in LA that only means pass on wearing flip flops), check out Joe's. Joe's is just a few doors down from Primitivo.
For dessert, Jin Patisserie is a very cool place to have tea and great handmade sweets. jinpatisserie dot com
Pratically nothing on Abbot opens before noon, so don't show up in the early AM. Sorry about the websites, the 15 post rule is a pain.
