So we heard a lot of buzz about A-Frame, in Culver City, so decided to check it out.

It's a cool place, the beer list is awesome, the menu is interesting. We started with the salads and this was very good, nice maui onion slices, fresh, and tasty dressing. The beers had a nice bite, craftsman good.

But I had the knuckle sandwich and it was awful. Imagine a plate of stewed oxtail combined with cartelage and grissle, with a side of bread for either dipping or munching or making your own sandwiches. After a few bites of a rather tasteless product, I got pretty tired of eating what amounted to a big bowl of fat swimming in a puddle of bland muck. The bread was actually very good, but that was about it, and paying $23 for some nice toast is crazy.

GF has the cheeseburger which wasn't much better. Bland meat, weird toppings.

Maybe we ordered the wrong things, which does happen sometimes, but I was a little astounded at how a place which was getting rave reviews turned out to be pretty lame.

Dessert was okay, service was nice, atmosphere was good, but in the end it all comes down to the food and the main courses were borderline inedible.

My two cents. Hope others had a better experience.
