LA restaurants were given the green light to reopen for dine-in service with new guidelines starting May 29th. Some dining safety measures include tables no closer than 6 feet apart, disinfection plans, employee health checks, removal of self-service items, and more.

Though we may have spent the past three months of quarantine trying to channel our inner-mixologist, we much prefer leaving it to the professionals. At Chulita, an Alta California-style Mexican restaurant in the heart of Venice, let the bartenders shake up mezcal and tequila-tinged drinks as you soak in the sunny outdoor space.
