RUSH STREET in Culver City will change the way you think of sports bars forever. The usual image: loud places, below average foods and lackluster service. It’s just the opposite at RUSH STREET. Yes there are large screen TVs and a massive bar; otherwise it’s all grade A restaurant. The overstuffed shrimp and lobster egg roll feeds two maybe three people as a starter. Ditto on their famous mac n cheese – so gooey and creamy – served in a bubbling cheesy crock. To save a few calories (who are we kidding), I asked for carrot sticks with the fresh made guacamole.
The menu offers so many options – for lighter dining there are lots of appetizers, huge salads, a slate of burgers and flatbreads. My rack of BBQ ribs simply fell off the bone (and the plate). The grilled salmon served over bok choy with a shrimp salsa is an ideal lighter choice. Save room for dessert! Be sure to order one of their house drinks. I loved my Steve’s Lemonade served in a mason jar – light, refreshing and powerful.
RUSH STREET is ideal for pre or post-movie dinner (ArcLight is next door); an after-work hangout; late night in the upstairs Club Rush; weekend brunch, or a fun family meal.
Rush Street is located at 9546 Washington Boulevard in Culver City.
