dineLA: Rush Street
Everything I really need to know I learned at Rush Street. 1.Share everything. The servings here are so generous and the food looks so appealing, it is impossible to keep your friends' fingers out of your fries. Luckily, you have a mess of fries and can afford to lose a few. After all, Rush Street generously invited LAist to sample their dineLA menu, so share and share alike.
We have long been fans of Rush Street, an open and airy yet cozy gastropub located in the Culver City restaurant cluster. On a cool February evening the patio is uncrowded, and the large glass doors are shut tight against the chill. The elevated leather booths envelop you in comfort and warmth. From customers to servers to the convivial manager, everyone appears content and relaxed.
The restaurant's American fare is well-represented on the dineLA menu. To keep things interesting, the house switches up one of the selections every night. However, they make certain each course offers something vegetarian, possibly even vegan, and they keep the flourless chocolate torte on the menu to accomodate people who can't handle their gluten. Last night the advertised Farmer's Market Soup was replaced with Black Bean, and the Grilled 10oz Pork Chop was replaced by a tender Hanger Steak Frites (much to our delight).
