fathers office

Father's Office is the flagship of L.A.'s gastro pub scene, a high decibel place of burnished wood, communal tables and upscale comfort food. Missing are pompous dishes that take a waiter several minutes to describe and complex, toast worthy champagnes. Instead, you'll find their famous "Office Burger", a meaty treat topped with blue cheese and caramelized onions, sweet potato fries, duck confit salad and sea urchin toast. (Ok, that sounds a little pretentious, but pair it with one of their 36 tap beers, and you'll be brought back down to earth). Father's Office appears on many critics' ten best lists, making it one of the most celebrated Culver City Restaurants.

J and J bbq and burger

The most down home of our Culver City Restaurants, a visit to this classic tin-roofed barbecue shack will make you feel like you're on a road trip to the Deep South. You order sandwiches at the front counter, barbecue in the back, where the locomotive style , cast-iron smoker says serious barbecue. We love their pork ribs which are served slathered in a rich, molasses-color sauce that walks your taste buds right up to the edge of "too hot", and leaves 'em there gloriously satisfied. The meat is tender and easy to pull off the bone, but isn't mushy like some overcooked bbq we've had. Sides include potato salad, cole slaw, greens, mac and cheese and baked beans that are sweet and slightly crunchy.
