When in Culver City: Wine-Friendly Dishes

When in Culver City: Wine-Friendly Dishes

You can source an entire wine-friendly meal within one mile of Walker Wine Co. in Culver City.

If you're in L.A. or have a chance to swing by and visit, keep this little list handy. Here are a few specific dishes around the corner that we're finding particularly worth pursuing.

8888 Washington Blvd. 

The Modern Parisian restaurant is adjacent to the stylish Platform shopping destination. During the day, it's a bright and vibrant French setting for an elegant brunch or lunch, and at dinner it's a knockout refined meal with a wine list you'll want to have linger tableside. Especially on weekends, as they roate specials such as half-off magnums and Champagne, or regularly scheduled wine dinners celebrating French producers.

The Jolly Oyster Bar
9355 Culver Blvd.

Walk up to the counter in the ever-evolving Citizen Public Market for freshly shucked small and savory Kumamoto to fresh and bright Baja California oysters. Request them to-go to enjoy at home with your favorite Champagne or Chablis.

9355 Culver Blvd.

This sushi hand roll bar in Citizen Public Market is gem inside the food hall. Liwei Liao, aka the dry aged fish guy (who also owns The Joint in Sherman Oaks) is devoted to serving handrolls, chirashi bowls, and sashimi using dry-aged fish. Sashimi is the best way to enjoy the subtly rich and umami quality of the expertly conditioned tuna, kanpachi, albacore and more. If the idea of dry aged fish sounds, well, sort of fishy, you'll appreciate this KCRW Good Food segment.

Pasta Sisters
3280 Helm's Ave.

Found at the rear corner of the historic Helms Bakery complex, the casual patio eatery executes generous portions of fresh pasta almost entirely fatto di mano, handmade daily. Perfect dishes for pairing: tagliatelle bolognese or the spaghetti with porcini mushroom.
