First Look: Public School 310 in Culver City

Public School 310 in downtown Culver City officially opened last week at the corner of Culver Boulevard and Main Street, the location formerly occupied by Fraiche. When my wife and I checked it out last Thursday, the gastropub -- owned by the same people who brought you The Daily Grill -- was packed with young people checking out the scene.

We started with an appetizer of Bacon Cheddar Tater Tots. They had us with "bacon cheddar," but what really made the dish was the restaurant's signature mix of ketchup and sriracha hot sauce. We were so excited to dig in that I forgot to take a "before" picture. Here's what was left when I came to my senses. These pics were all blurry, so I think I might have been on some kind of nostalgia & starch high at this point.

We also checked out the Farro & Brussel Salad. Served with cranberries, pecans, tiny squares of butternut squash, and a light curry vinaigrette, it was a nice antidote to the vinegary "flash-fried" sprouts at Culver City hangouts like Father's Office and The Corner Door. 

For my main course, I tried the Colorado Lamb Burger, which despite the exotic meat bore a striking resemblance to the rich, savory hamburger you can get at Father's Office or Rush Street. It was served with arugula and brie as well as a tomato Cranberry jam that I didn't realize was supposed to be slathered on the burger itself. Instead I dipped my crispy fries in it.

In all, Public School 310 provided a fun evening. The bar offers a wide variety of beers, wines, and seasonal specialty drinks, and the food was perfect for lunch or after-movie nosh. 

Public School 310 is located at 9411 Culver Blvd.

I was there twice last week. It's a fun place, the food and beers were good also. Great addition to DTCC.
