Public School 310 just opened a few weeks ago, replacing Fraiche, in Downtown Culver City. It's been packed every time I've tried to stop in, but I've gotten us an early Friday evening reservation.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Quick Pitch: Bob Spivak, who dreamed up the Grill on the Alley (as well as the Daily Grill spin-off chain), has gotten into the gastropub game. This second outpost of the Public School concept – the first, with a much smaller menu, is in downtown L.A. – tinkers with the standard repertoire (deviled eggs with crispy speck, bacon cheddar tater tots with sriracha ketchup) and also moves beyond it (a not-at-all British engagement with a stuffed, roasted poblano pepper involving quinoa). There’s also, naturally, a serious suds selection, including locally sourced finds like the American Amber by Venice Beach Beer Co. and the Golden Road Hefeweizen from the Atwater Village brewery.
$10 reserves your spot, to be refunded when you attend the event or cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
