Downtown Culver City always seems to be reinventing itself, but one place that never changes too much is the Culver Hotel. The historic space has been a neighborhood landmark since the 1920’s and holds more Hollywood secrets than most places in Hollywood—it’s just a shame that its lobby restaurants have always been lackluster. Feel free to add Lillie’s to that list. The newest name to take over the ground-floor space provides essentially what its predecessors did: a kitschy, Old Hollywood vibe, nightly live music, and extremely mediocre food. If you want to meet up with a friend and slurp oysters at the bar, you’ll leave content, but otherwise, there’s no reason for a full meal here. The large outdoor patio is a good spot for post-work drinks with a group of coworkers.
