On Monday nights, James’ Beach in Venice has bottles of wine for 50% off. And they have a very extensive wine list. I wasn’t drinking that night (DayQuil and NyQuil in the recent past), but the waiter was very knowledgeable about food and wine offerings alike. The sand dabs with spinach, pine nuts, and golden raisins is a good choice, but the menu was full of things I’d like to try. This would be a great restaurant for a nice dinner, or a celebratory Happy Hour.
