Wilson's or Fords' Filling Station?
Am taking two gals to lunch. One lives in Hawthorne, one in Venice and I live in Santa Monica. Culver City seemed like a good mid-point. Had thought of either Wilson's or Ford's Filling Station--have tried neither. Any other ideas--nice atmosphere, moderate price? Thanks.
cannot recommend Ford's Filling Station-
expensive for what it is and mediocre.
Haven't been to Wilson
what about Beacon in the same area?- Asian-fusion, delish, nice menu choices, about the same price point or lower $10-15 lunch entrees
Thought I just posted this, but it didn't show up.
Anyway, go to Wilson, definitely. There are only a very few items at FFF that are actually good, and last I was there, service was still pretty bad. But service had been bad at Wilson too, but at least their food is much better than FFF.
I agree about Wilson - the food is excellent at lunch (if you don't mind dropping some cash). FFS has been inconsistent and unimpressive the few times I've been there, with spotty service.
In the same area, Bistro de l'Hermitage. (You can search Chowhound - there are threads.) It's a lovely little French place on a very wide scenic sidewalk - great outdoor patio, great food - and be sure to order the chocolate souffle as soon as you get there, for dessert. (Takes time to make.) The halibut - I think it's halibut - is in a truly gorgeous wine/cream/herb sauce.
