    Fraiche is terrific and has great cocktails and food.

      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...

            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. akasharestaurant.com
