Roy Choi of Kogi, Chego and A-Frame says he’ll be opening new restaurant Sunny Spot on Nov. 18 in Venice in the former Beechwood space -- ‘think roadside cookshop, where every day’s a holiday.’

Inspired by the cuisine of the West Indies, Sunny Spot’s menu runs the gamut from double-fried jerk chicken and rum-glazed prawns to slow-roasted whole goat and papaya-guava honey pot salad with crushed cashews, red onion, lime and tarragon (pictured).


Brian Butler, who created the cocktail list at A-Frame, put together the drinks menu at Sunny Spot. Expect a little hibiscus in your Air Mail and Nicaraguan rum in your Old Fashioned.
