I have been to Vardo at least a few times because it's so cozy and pretty. But the food is just okay and very over priced for what you get. The Indian/Middle Eastern fusion misses the spice of India and the sweetness of Mid-Eastern cuisine....More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
