Barnyard is an intimate neighborhood restaurant by Chef Jesse Barber, bringing a soulful and rustic menu of small and shared plates, small-production wines and beers to South Venice.
Known for his mastery of meats and fish, Barber imbues his dishes with Mediterranean and Japanese flavors and textures. House-made sausages, slow-cooked stocks and seasonal produce are meticulously cared for; the quality refelects Barber's training under Thomas Keller, at French Laundry and Bouchon.
As the opening Chef de Cuisine at The Tasting Kitchen in Venice, Jesse led a troupe of talented, young professionals on a journey that involved late nights, early mornings and loads of commitment to their culinary craft. They transformed the space from near bankruptcy into one of GQ's “Top 10 Restaurants in America” and nominee for three James Beard Awards.
“Food is one of the most important connections between people and I hope to create lasting relationships with neighbors, friends, farms and local vendors.”
When he is not behind the stove, Barber is building his motorcycle, piece by piece, or surfing the waves, 2 blocks from Barnyard.
