Sunny Spot Shines In Venice:

Also saucily known as “Hot Spot” amongst my friends (for reasons you will have to see for yourself) – Sunny Spot, a Venice-thriving brunch, happy hour, dinner, and bar spot is my newest favorite of the infamous Kogi clan.

Bred, born, and raised behind its older siblings Chego, A-Frame, and Alibi Room, Sunny Spot has hints of A-Frame and sauces like Chego, but serves earlier than all three via plentiful brunch starting at 10 am every weekend.

While I’m a huge fan of recommendations 50 percent of the time, I’ve realized that if you go to brunch early (like, 11 am) or if you simply walk in to a restaurant a bit off hours and days (like Monday at 8 pm) you’ll have naught a full-house in sight.

So, while Sunny Spot can get really hot at brunch, if you go early you’ll get in, get full, and get out before a line forms.

The indoor-outdoor seating looks like the touches of interior decorating by Alice in Wonderland all grown up.

Flowers, spring colors, funky mismatched plates and silverware, the sexy thing about it is that this slightly frilly beach-side space gets down at night.

Racks of alcohol, a menu that boasts “Open Late 7 Days,” and a brunchy clientele that will make you wonder if you should have kept on your going-out clothes from last night, this petite eatery is no slouch to the Venice party life we know and love.

Do you like saucy, spicy, meaty, and lip-smacking delicious?

If you heart eating out of a bowl or mashing everything together, definitely pull up a chair to this menu.

Brunch is a typical fare of options that range from eggs any way to omelets, French toast to salad, and grits to – ohdeargod, one of the best words and overall bowls of who-really-knows-what called Muh-F’K’N-MoFongo with eggs – and your usual coffee, juice, soda, and boozy AM cocktails.

You can tell what I recommend, whatever else you get: do the MoFongo. Claiming to be composed of plantain, garlic, bacon, herbs, ginger oil, and eggs – just eat it.

It will be excellent, and that is all your taste buds and stomach need to know.

Personally, I can’t wait to return, which says a lot considering there’s practically a bar, restaurant, or cafe every 200 feet in Venice.

But this MoFongo-munching, beach-kissed crowd is priceless, and absolutely worth several meals and late-nights of seconds.
