The Wallace, Culver City

The Wallace offers a seasonal, vegetable-forward menu in a cool setting in downtown Culver City.  I started with a Flower Power mocktail, which was excellent.  They offer several non-alcoholic drinks, as well as cocktails, beer and wine.

Each dish was very flavorful with a generous use of different types of hot peppers.  The portion of the roasted cauliflower steak was huge.  We would have taken half home, if we weren't staying in a hotel.  Although the portion of the yucca seemed small for a main course, it was very filling and I finished about half of it.  I would describe the cuisine as a California/Mexican fusion with an emphasis on fresh ingredients with simple preparations that let the ingredients shine, but with the use of herbs and chiles to add a lot of flavor punch.  I highly recommend!  

The area is busy with plenty of restaurants and bars.  There is some parking in a public lot, behind the restaurant, which is free for the first hour.  We paid $1 for parking!
