Restaurant similar to Canele on the Westside


I'm looking for a restaurant similar to Canele (in ambience, price) in Atwater Village, but on the westside. Anywhere from West Hollywood to Santa Monica would be great. Also willing to go south into Culver, MDR, Venice. Any suggestions would be great thanks.

  1. A couple of places come to mind. Nook Bistro is a terrific neighborhood place....with very good prices. And Ammo has the same characteristics....good food, good service, good prices. I haven't been to Ammo since they changed chefs, but I've read really good things. And a friend of mine went there for the first time the other night and was very impressed.

    1. Have you been to Fraiche or St. Amour? The Culver City location of Fraiche just hired the former chef from Petrossian and he is doing very good things with the menu. There are also Lilly's in Venice and La Cachette Bistro in Santa Monica, but I like them less well.
