Communal tables, shared plates, and a lively atmosphere have made this Venice Beach eatery one of the most competitive spots on Abbot Kinney. It might also have something to do with the wholesome, unique, and somewat addictive Mediterranean cuisine—including stuffed pasilla chiles, mole chicken in banana leaves, and zucchini tamales.
