James' Beach Restaurant/Bar in Venice

Contemporary restaurant/bar/hangout place. Food was very good. Service was extrememly slow. Entrees ranged in price from $20-30. i tasted both the halibut (with string beans and mashed potatoes) and brisket (with roasted vegetables). Both dishes were very tasty. side note - menu stated that their french fries were voted "best in l.a." (we don't know by whom). they were just ok. nothing to brag about. i've definitely had better. after 10 pm, seems to turn in to a pickup joint. lots of blonds, both attractive and unattractive. mostly 30 somethings and a couple of 40 somethings. spotted mike d from beastie boyz there.
