On the fine dining front, have enjoyed our dinners at Alexander’s and the Social Hour until 6:30pm is delicious - Wagyu burger on a miso dutch crunch bun with camembert, $16; Imperial Wagyu Brisket with Japanese Potato Salad, $26; Furikake Potato Croquettes $8 - all delicious; King Crab Fried Rice, $21.
A little more on Annapurna, a branch of the Culver City south Indian restaurant, but this one servies meat. Really respectable dosa, and where else can you get decent dosa in LA? The family dosa is really entertaining and delicious. Spicy here is really spicy. Lots of Indian patrons.
Also more on Urban Plates on Lake and Del Mar. Grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and more. A sort of love child of Lemonade and Tender Greens, but less fussy than Lemonade and more flavorful than Tender Greens. Nice desserts. Beer & wine. Earnest staff. Excellent WiFi if working. Well priced. It’s sort of a “why cook dinner” default.
