Double Dutch Dinette - Culver City

WLA | Mar 1, 2004 07:59 PM

I get Westways Magazine, (the Automobile Club of So. California's publication) for their restaurant rec's section. Sometimes it is great and sometimes not, but at least they try and cover a wide range of places spread over a large geographic area, (Orange County, LA and the IE, San Diego and north to Santa Barbara, Ojai, etc.).

Today they reviewed this little place in Culver City I have not heard of before, the Double Dutch Dinette, (9806 Washington Blvd. 310.280.0991).

It is owned by a caterer, Jennie Cook and was at one time only a lunch place. But they have evidently added a dinner chef and a small wine list. The chef is from Puerto Rico, (Luis Castro) and the menu features things like slow-roasted brisket and chicken fufu, (which was described as a chicken breast stuffed with sweet plantains and queso fresco). Supposedly very generous portions and good food.

Anyone have any first hand knowledge?
