Mélisse chef Josiah Citrin is behind this casual Venice eatery that focuses on modern comfort food. Inspired by backyard barbecues, Charcoal grills all its meat over open-flames -- either over charcoal or in the coals. The menu is split between hearty steaks and family-style vegetable dishes, plus a few tartare variations.
Josiah Citrin’s live-fire-focused spot just off the beach will be doing a dine-in tasting menu featuring signature dishes like his killer cabbage baked in embers, Smoked Mushroom and Beet Tartare,and special holiday starters including aSunchoke Rosemary Soup, and Grilled Escarole. Guests can choose between entrees of either a Smoked Turkey with Mushroom Stuffing or Prime Rib that’s slow roasted in a Big Green Egg (the Rolls Royce of grills, FYI), plus a true mix of sides with Praline Pecan Yams, Whipped Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, and Szechuan Green Beans. You’ll wind down with some surprise seasonal pies.
