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 food at Barnyard is the purview of Chef Jesse Barber, formerly Chef de Cuisine at Tasting Kitchen, who trained with Thomas Keller at French Laundry. But fear not, Barber is an intellectual, in search of satisfaction and simplicity. There will be a refreshing lack of pretention on the plate and in the glass. Barber is a purist, focusing on local and seasonal ingredients, drawing mostly on Mediterranean and classical cooking techniques. There will be no foams or molecular hocus-pocus, just simple, local and delicious food.

Since the ‘60s, our location at 1715 Pacific has been a refuge for locals seeking a hearty, honest bite. Sitting on its own parking lot, next to Asylm’s famous blue graffiti box, Barnyard stays true to its beach legacy. 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. Overlooking Pacific Avenue, our covered patio is perfect for a sunny lunch or an evening drink with friends.

So, come as you are. We invite you to eat, drink, laugh and share with us at Barnyard Venice – established 2012 and here to stay.
