If you think the Venice boardwalk is a living nightmare, then you'll be surprised that this neighborhood gem exists just steps away from the main thoroughfare. With string lights strung up above the sidewalk patio area, Dudley Market is like the Westside version of Virgil Village's Melody: a stylish, low-key spot with natural wine, freshly shucked oysters and plenty of well-dressed patrons. Unlike the Silver Lake-adjacent wine bar, however, the day-to-day menu focuses on sustainable seafood and bar bites, from delicious crudos to an excellent house burger. While we wouldn't go out of our way to eat here, it's a great option for locals looking for a nicer meal and visitors looking for a respite from overpriced tourist traps.
