Los Angeles Magazine's "Power-Ranking" of new L.A. restaurants serves as a guide to the hottest eateries in the city -- and its rare when a 5-year-old (!!) restaurant makes the last. But thanks to chef Roy Choi's decision to rethink the menu to emphasize the Hawaiian-ness that Choi says was always part of the menu's charm, that's exactly what happened to A-Frame.
Here's what the Los Angeles article had to say about the restaurant:
Inspired by recent trips to Hawaii, Roy Choi decided to flip the concept of his Culver City restaurant A-Frame. The menu now features classic island fare like spicy tuna poke, curry gravy loco moco, Spam musubi, and marinated…

If you've been waiting for the right time to spend a Saturday evening in the Culver City Art District, this weekend (February 21) is it. George Billis Gallery, Western Project, and Luis De Jesus Gallery are all having openings. And in my experience, that means there'll be a lot of activity at all the galleries on La Cienega and on Washington. Great art is likely and great people-watching is guaranteed. Openings are (always) free and open to the public and generally last from 6 to 8 pm.
George Billis Gallery LA (at 2716 S. La Cienega Blvd) will feature works by Anne Seidman and Karen Woods. Here's an example of Seidman's work:…Continue

Just go ahead and dub Culver City the Dive Bar Capital of the City. Evidence? When Thrillist assembled its look at the finest dive bars in Los Angeles, a full 16 percent of the bars were located in our fair burg.
Scarlet Lady was called "The best dive for free homemade food," and the article added:
The Scarlet Lady tempts you with many of the usual trappings of a genuine dive bar: cheap and strong drinks, colorful clientele, unpolished karaoke, and well-worn pool tables. But where it really comes through strong is with regular appearances of homemade food (chili, hot dogs, nachos, breakfast burritos...), often times for free, or at least all you…
The above phone shows it's new look, and here's the "before" pic.
The mural is painted on the northwest corner of Smashbox Studios -- located at 8549 Higurera…Continue
