The Zinqué in West Hollywood is full of of actors attempting to be discovered and people who eat food only to become not-hungry. The Venice location on Abbot Kinney is way more low-key, perhaps because the tourists don’t want to bother crossing Venice Blvd. for it. It’s an all-day operation with a straightforward, well-priced breakfast menu, simple sandwiches and salads and lunch, and plenty of wine all the time.
