The healthy new restaurants on Abbot Kinney in Venice keep coming. I just spoke about Greenleaf Chopshop, and before that was vegan Plant Food and Wine, and you might even include Fala Bar in the healthy restaurant conversation with their organic vegan falafel, that happens to also be uber-fried. So the opening of Butcher's Daughter puts it in good company of healthy new restaurants on Abbot Kinney in Venice.
You know how good salmon is for you, right? I do, but for some reason, I never make it at home. It has a pronounced smell and I've always gravitated to other fish. Then I keep reading the articles about the amazing Omega 3 benefits of salmon, not to mention all of the great vitamins. I guess I finally hit my wall and decided it's time to cook some salmon. I knew I'd need some bold flavors to make sure this wasn't a boring "fishy-fish" recipe, so that's why we have today's spicy cilantro lime baked salmon.
Whether dining with a group or solo, Butcher's Daughter on Abbot Kinney in Venice is a pretty spot to stop in for any meal of the day with vegan and gluten free options.

Chicago is home to many top chefs like Rick Bayless, Stephanie Izard and Grant Achatz, who are opening a variety of restaurants from high end dining to casual cafes and interesting takeaway.
Grant Achatz has brought his culinary creativity from hit restaurant's Alinea and Next and applied it to Chicago cocktail bar, The Aviary. The drinks are as good, if not better, than the food.
Chicago's Next Restaurant is acclaimed Chef Grant Achatz's playful outpost that serves a rotating seasonal menu that focuses on a different region or cuisine. I experienced his interpretation of Peru with modern twists.
