Looking for a cool bar where you can have ridiculously good food? I found just the place. It’s the Corner Door on Washington Boulevard in Culver City, which is really the new Restaurant Row thanks to this place along with Waterloo & City and A-Frame. (Although admittedly W&C is kinda hit and miss.) I wasn’t expecting too much when I first decided to check it out because, let’s be honest, the Corner Door sounds like just another gastropub. But I have no problem admitting I was wrong. This place rocks!
It also gets really busy by 6:30pm Thursday-Saturday nights, so show up early if you can … or late; this place packs ’em in well past midnight. And for the most important part: the food is outstanding! Chef Luke Reyes (Puerto Rican en la casa!!) is super talented and bartender extraordinaire Beau du Bois is a madman when it comes to clever cocktail names and incredible flavors. (Yes, even I couldn’t resist ordering Grandma’s Pack of Cigarettes.) Service is friendly and informed and the owner Tony is just so nice. Happy Hour is til 7pm. My advice: Go check this place out STAT!!! You won’t be sorry.
