The Anchor is a laid-back spot full of locals at the Venice end of Main St. Brunch is the main event here (the $16, 90-minute bottomless deal is a big draw), and the biscuits and gravy are great. After-work drinks that inevitably turn into dinner are also a good move - especially once you order the lobster roll.
