Restaurants near Culver Plaza Theaters

Does anyone know of good, reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance of the theaters?

  1. You might want to indicate what ballpark "reasonably priced" is. The bulk of the restaurants in Downtown Culver City would be considered within walking distance to me. Also, do you have any eating preferences or dislikes? For instance, I really like Mezza which is approximately across the street from the Kirk Douglas Theater. It's Lebanese, has lots of small plates and entrees, and the average hungry eater will probably spend around $15-$20.

    1. for 'reasonably priced' sushi and japanese food, i like k-zo which, to me, is walking distance.
      of course, 'reasonably priced' japanese food/sushi is still going to cost more than burgers.

      1. In addition to Mezza, there are L'Epicerie and Saint Amour for French or, a tad further, Ford's Filling Station and Fraiche for American and Mediterranean, respectively, as well as Libra for decent churrascaria. Of course, if you want something more basic, there are also Victor Jr.'s (subs and pizza) and Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken.

          just had lunch at fraiche the other day.
          their pappardelle was ok, but nothing special
          their CHOCOLATE BAG dessert which has achieved some TV fame, was very unbalanced:
          al lot of overly sweet chocolate syrupy glop, with one tiny tablespoon of vanilla ice cream which was an inadequate quantity to offset the density/heaviness/sugarieness of the chocolate. served with candied hazelnuts which were the high-point of the dish.

            There's also Meet French Bistro if your interested in mussels.

              Although overall I'd prefer Saint Amour over Meet for a French Bistro. Service is good at both places but the food at Saint Amour is better to my taste buds.

              Finally made it to L'Epicerie the other day. They have a very reasonable tapas menu. Happy hour is from 4-7 and the tapas are only $3 a plate. Bread is good too. By ordering smartly, it can be easy to have a filling meal for around $20 a person without alcohol and before tax and tip.
