Going to a show in Topanga next Sunday. He likes chicken, she likes everything. Where to eat on the way there? Coming from Culver City. Mostly tired of Culver City and Santa Monica, but maybe the new Riva menu is good? Something in Malibu? Is there a great roasted chicken on the westside I should know about?

  1. Wait until you actually arrive in Topanga, and try the Canyon Bistro. It's in the Pine Tree Center, at the intersection of Topanga Canyon Blvd. and Old Topanga Canyon Rd. -- if you are coming up from the coast (which I assume will be the case, if you are coming from Culver City), it will be on your right. Good food, pleasant service, nice tables outside. You can see their menu here:

      I second this recommendation, they're great. But they're small so make a reservation if possible.

      If you decide on Malibu, I always like Taverna Tony's, but then you've got to get the roast baby lamb kleftiko.
