Culver City for B-day Dinner before Karokee at Boardwalk 11

I am doing a b-day dinner and don't want a super expensive place...Already went to Ugo and I don't eat sushi...not so keen on ford's filing station...was thinking of fraiche...any thoughts???

  1. Fraiche is terrific and has great cocktails and food.

    1. Not sure what you mean by "super expensive," but Fraiche is pretty much the most expensive restaurant in Culver City.

      I haven't been there yet, but I hear good things about Cucina Paradiso (Italian place very close to B11). Or you could go somewhere in Century City -- that's nearly as close to the bar as downtown Culver City is.

          does Akasha have a good steak? Fraiche has a steak dish that is in the 25 dollar range...restaurants in that range are good for me...

          1. re: erinl

            Yes, they have good steak but I usually opt for shortribs. They don't have a huge menu so you may want to look on their website before going. I don't believe the steak is more than $25. It is all reasonably priced for the quality of ingredients.
