The Corner Door, Culver City's latest restaurant and bar, located next to A-Frame and Waterloo & City on Washington Blvd. opens this Friday.

We got a chance to check it out at a soft opening last night and indulge in a ridiculously delicious assortment of specialty cocktails and a menu that aims to stand shoulder to shoulder with L.A.'s finest. It should after all, owners Todd Jerry and Anthony Falati cut no corners when hiring Luke Reyes of The Tasting Kitchen and Chimu to create the menu and Beau du Bois of MB Post to craft cocktails.

Exposed brick walls, oversized pendant lamps and dark gray interiors make the intimate space feel comfortably modern while plenty of windows open it up to the casual vibe set off by the up-and-coming enclave of neighboring restaurants.

The cocktail menu features the standards -- an old fashioned, a French 75. And the sulty mezcal makes an appearance in the Originals section in the Mezcallin, mixed with fresh lemon, ginger, and pineapple gomme.

Menu standouts include the fried brussels sprouts with feta (we may never be able to eat brussels sprouts prepared any other way - ever), butcher's cut steak and fries with salsa verde, and a big soupy burger that gets all over your face. For dessert, the warm chocolate chip cookies dipped in bourbon milk with a scoop of coffee ice cream were cozily reminiscent of nana's Irish coffee on Christmas morning. The lemon verbena and thyme panna cotta and horchata-soaked almond cake were also crowd favorites.

The Corner Door opens tomorrow, June 1 from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. It's located at 12477 W. Washington Boulevard in Culver City.
