Keep It Local at The Wallace

Culver City is home for the holidays

Thanksgiving (T minus three days) got you feeling nostalgic?

Make yourself at home at The Wallace, Culver City’s latest sustainability-focused restaurant, opening Saturday. Its menu leans heavily on the one thing you spent childhood avoiding (vegetables) and your teenage years trying to sneak (booze).

Husband-and-wife owners Michael and Carol Teich source seasonal ingredients from local farms for small plates such as roasted delicata squash with curried yogurt and cilantro quinoa, sprouting broccoli with tahini and marinated feta, and pistachio vinaigrette-doused market greens.

Carnivores can get their fill of land and sea options (Niman Ranch meats, Monterey Bay safe-list seafood) from roasted diver scallops served with butternut squash puree (pictured above), short rib ravioli, and a duck confit slathered in hoisin barbecue sauce.

Join the conversation at natural wood communal tables under Brooklyn-made light fixtures, and celebrate no longer living at home with Morning Sex (bourbon, chai fennel syrup, Peychaud bitters). Or work your way to the same happy ending with Warm Fuzzies (house-made eggnog, rum, nutmeg), courtesy of beverage director Holly Zack.

Just a couple more things to be thankful for.

The Wallace, 3833 Main Street, at Culver Boulevard, Culver City (310-202-6400 or thewallacela.com).
