Rush Street Restaurant Review

: Owner Brian McKeaney, whose offices are in Culver City, couldn't find a fun, comfortable bar to unwind after work. So he decided to open his own in the now-busy downtown area. Rush Street claims to have the longest bar in the city (though we didn't measure): 35 feet of polished concrete. Indeed, the very lengthy slab holds hundreds of back-lit bottles that serve as the decorative focus of the brick-walled dining room. It's easy to see that the cocktails and micro-brewed beers are the big attraction at this restaurant named after the famed street in Chicago, where McKeaney's family owns six restaurants/bars. Drinks, which can also be sipped on the two outdoor terraces, may be accompanied by small bites such as crispy Parmesan calamari, savory seared ahi nachos and tasty pork rillettes. We prefer the dry-aged beef sliders to the barbecue pork version, though the bread of the latter is much better. In the pizza category, do not venture any further than the traditional margherita. Bigger appetites may opt for the braised short ribs, wild mushroom turkey meatloaf, salmon stir-fry or pumpkin ravioli. Check the nightly specials; Tuesdays bring half-off wines. For dessert, we recommend the carrot cake since the other ones are not really interesting. Note that food is served most nights until midnight, and until 12:30 a.m. on Saturdays.

good food and atmosphere, not spectacular

Went to Rush Street for brunch. My friend had the spanish tortilla, which is a seafood frittata-type dish, with crab, lobster and other seafood, and it was really tasty. My dry-aged burger was also very good. The place was empty when we were there, but it's probably more crowded at night with the bar-scene. Overall, I'd say it's a good place for a bite and some drinks in a nice atmostphere, but definitely not a must-try dining destination.
