One of my favorite meals (of many) in LA was at Joe's Restaurant on Abbot Kinney in Venice. I went with a group of good friends and we were seated at a sunny corner table for brunch. Bloody Marys, mimosas, biscuits, egg scrambles and my short rib hash were enjoyed. The atmosphere was classy, lively and upbeat. It was a great morning meal after a late night concert, and we even made friends with a pup on the street.
