The Tasting Kitchen is a contemporary Italian restaurant with a New American farm to table heritage, using traditional and classic regional diction with thoughtful, local growers to guide guests through the ever changing landscape of Southern Californian cuisine. The restaurant reinforces their scratch kitchen philosophy with handmade pastas, whole animal butchery, and produce from the westside farmers markets. The menu changes regularly based on seasonal fresh produce and offers an optional tasting format as a guided dining experience. The neo-classical cuisine is amplified by an exquisite, purposely-curated wine portfolio and a celebrated cocktail program. Designed around a central olive tree in the entrance, The Tasting Kitchen, which opened in 2009, is a romantic, intimate space where one would be comfortable finishing a bottle of wine with friends until closing time. It is located on Abbot Kinney in Venice, California and is open for dinner daily and weekend brunch.
