Venice is always in need of more great, low-key neighborhood restaurants - and Dudley Market is back to fill that void. This iconic seafood spot, which had closed in 2017, is less than a block from the Boardwalk, and despite that, somehow remains tourist-free. It’s a fantastic place to just have oysters and some natural wine, but if that’s all you do, you’ll be missing out on the full menu of excellent seafood caught that day. Don’t leave without getting the pork belly and clam toast, and if it’s on the menu, you need to order the rockfish - an excellent whole-fried fish with sambal. The servers will treat you like you’ve lived next to them on the Canals for 15 years, and the sommelier might come by with another glass of wine he thinks you’d enjoy, just because.
