THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sublime Food Lounge Restaurant Review

: This ambitious Culver City neighborhood bistro reflects the energy of the art and architecture community that surrounds it. The glassed-in corner of the MODAA building is a sexy, modern space with organic tones, a long bar, and a back patio flickering with glass fire pits. Executive chef/co-owner Randall Rosa’s passion is evident in the many intimate aspects of the restaurant, from the sleek wood furniture built with his partners to deftly infused liqueurs, sophisticated house-made charcuterie and a handful of well conceived dishes. Some of the haute bar food fits the “lounge” appellation---a creamy lobster bacon mac ‘n’ cheese drenched in béchamel; a plateful of addictive confit veal riblettes; or the squash blossom flatbread with truffle goat cheese and honey crème. Pair them with well-wrought cocktails or a glass of interesting small-production boutique wine from Europe or Pan-America. We also recommend Rosa’s foie gras french toast, lightly veneered with passion fruit syrup; and the crispy pork belly cured and compressed to tender leanness, paired with cabbage fennel slaw, fresh strawberries, pear and jalapeño, with a root beer glaze. Look for blackboard seasonal specials like wild boar rillettes, and don’t miss Rosa’s original “Buddha-Cello,” a house-made limoncello made with the unique Buddha’s hand citrus fruit.
