A new rooftop restaurant at Platform in Culver City, Margot has a great patio and pretty good food. While nothing on the mostly Mediterranean menu is too memorable (except for the very good spicy ’nduja toast), you’re here to drink cocktails next to a fire on the patio and watch Expo line trains pull into the station as the sun goes down. They also have a huge wine list, which the servers will help you navigate. There aren’t many great places to sit on a roof with a great views on the Westside, and this is definitely the place to do it.
