Bar
$$
“Classic old-school Vero restaurant with a great bar. You could see retired LA Dodger coaches or local movers and shakers. We love the Prime Rib Au Jus Dip sandwich with onion rings instead of the sides it comes with. You can't always get food at the bar, so call first if you like bar dining. ”
