Stumbled upon this new restaurant in a strip mall of Culver Blvd @ McConnell. I go to the Wine warehouse on McConnell and hadn't noticed this place. It's across from Ronnie's Diner.
A group of four of us arrived for dinner at 8:30 on Saturday night, not sure what to expect but hopeful. The restaurant is only 5 weeks old and doesn't have a liquor license, but does allow BYOB with no corkage fee. We had prepared for this and brought a couple bottles of wine with us.
There is a prix fixe menu available which includes an appetizer, a pasta or entree and a side salad for $19.
There were so many great sounding things on the menu that we decided to order a few appetizers - Albacore Tiradito and Devil's Tofu - plus the Mixed mushroom salad. Everything was amazing.
Next we ordered entrees - Hamburg Steak, Fish of the day, Crispy Ponzu Chicken and the Tofu Steak appetizer.
We loved everything that was served. The owner/manager?? came over to us when we first arrived and again through out the meal. The service was excellent.
Love love love this place and will be back very soon. It definitely has the vibe of a great neighborhood find that you don't really want to share, but you really want them to succeed, so you have to tell everyone. We are leaving LA for a year and I really want Del Rey Kitchen to be here when we return.
Going back tonight with another group of friends and a couple more bottles of wine :)
