Nothing causes more craziness in Culver City these days than a new place to have lunch. You’d think the Beatles had come to town. Those guys at Sony make lines that wrap around the block. In a few months, the lines calm down and then the rest of us can come in. I’ve been to Melt Down a couple of times now. It’s a small place with an open kitchen and mostly outdoor seating, decorated sparely in black and stainless steal. The service is a real treat, very attentive. You place your order and they bring you your food. The menu is pretty varied for someplace that basically only serves grilled cheese sandwiches.
