waterloo & city- LOS ANGELES
b decided to take me to a nice restaurant in culver city, los angeles this weekend after hearing his co-workers rave on and on about this british gastropub restaurant. while doing research on this place, i googled the definition of a gastropub which is a public house that serves high-quality food – waterloo & city does exactly this.
sangria & complimentary bread
> the sangria is one of the best i’ve had. most sangria’s are water-downed but this was not. the bread was delicious. the dough is seasoned, served warm and really soft on the inside
prosciutto & salami plate
> b said this was “f- good”
mushrooms & snails
> decent. could be a tad bit more salty or flavorful
> divine. but the additional splash of olive oil on top was too much or perhaps unnecessary
halibut w/squash and grapes
> this fish dish has flavors put together like i never had before. the meat was tender, and the squash and grapes creates a nice sauce base for the halibut
+ be sure to make reservations because they are usually packed. service was good but not excellent. the atmosphere on a saturday night was intimate with dim lighting and comfortable seating, but the restaurant is not small itself. the menu was impressive- lots of appetizers and small plates to share which make it great for family and friendly gatherings. in essence, the food was excellent and i will be sure to come back and try other things on their menu.
