Hyperion Public is a local neighborhood restaurant and bar where everyone is welcome hence the word "Public" in our name. We serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week, including weekend brunch starting at 9am on Sat & Sun. Our menu is "Unique American" consisting of American cuisine with contemporary twists.

"Great space with hip bar and really good food but the service was horrible - felt like we were bothering the server - she seemed annoyed when we asked for water and another drink"

<br />Barnyard is an intimate, neighborhood restaurant by Chef Jesse Barber. Bringing a soulful menu of small and shared plates, small-production beers and naturally farmed wines to Venice. <br /><br />Known for his mastery of seafood and respect for seasonal produce, Barber cooks with a nod to classical French and Japanese techniques. 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.<br /><br />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.

Who is Olaf Banger? Few people really know, but everybody seems to have an opinion. They say Olaf Gufstafson Banger, or "OG" Banger as he was often called, was born in America, but moved to Germany in the 1940’s to learn the art of sausage making from a group of Tibetan Monks who had settled on the peak of the Zugspitze Mountain.<br />By the time he reached adulthood, his sausage making prowess had become so renowned, pigs would "fly" hundreds of miles just to be in one... no one could believe it. Though his fate remains a mystery his legacy lives on at the Sausage House & Beer Garden that bears his name. Good honest food & drink served by good honest people. That’s how Olaf liked it and so that’s how things will remain here at Banger’s.
