After an unexpected slowdown brought on by the departure of Jesse Barber back in March, Barnyard Venice decided to close up shop for a touch-up while they started on the hunt for someone to run the kitchen. Eventually, they found the man they were after and are now back in business, complete with a fresh new look.

There’s still lots of wood going on inside, but the place feels a touch less rustic than it did before. Gone are the mismatched metal chairs on the patio, but the string lights remain, and the wide bar is still a nice place to grab an easy meal.

Speaking of which, the new chef in question is Larry Monaco, who is bringing a strong neighborhood vibe to the menu, with globally-inspired plates that won’t break the bank. For now, it’s dinner only beginning at 6 p.m., but lunch and brunch service will start soon enough. Take a look at the full opening dinner menu below.
