A-Frame, Culver City
A-Frame is another one of Roy Choi’s creation that I’ve been meaning to try. The structure of the building is in an old iHop restaurant, but the inside is nothing like what you would normally expect from a pancake house. The tables are set up communal style, encouraging a place to meet old and new friends. Known for the ‘picnic style’ food, A-Frame turns simple and comforting foods into unique flavor combinations. I took my in-laws there for their first meal in L.A., and they were impressed by the style and type of food we had. We went during happy hour, which is Monday-Friday from 5PM-7PM, a generous time frame to order all the food and drink we could manage to eat. We even spotted the owner himself there!
Stalker-ish much? He actually tweeted me back confirming this.
