The restaurant seemed to have nice fresh fish,but the seating was poor and looked unfinished.
They did not have beer or wine licenses so we left. just a wide open space.

This is a pop up in Venice on Abbot Kinney that serves mostly seafood and some pizzas. The wife and I headed there on a Friday night before their official open.

The food was very tasty, descently priced (IMHO) and the over-all attitude was very friendly. I recommend!
