My September 2020 DineLA Restaurant List (takeout edition)

Now that we’ve been living with Covid for more of the year than not, I’ve got my takeout game down pretty well now, just in time for the next round of DineLA. (I used to almost never get takeout pre-Covid. I’m more of a cook at home or dine-in type).

I’ve narrowed down my top 4 picks based on which restaurants are offering takeout.

Mayura Indian Restaurant – Culver City

Why? I want to try a neighborhood restaurant I haven’t been to before. And Jonathan Gold liked this place.

What to order: fish curry, butter chicken, rasmali

Price: $35 lunch / $45 dinner 5 items total

Kazunori – Santa Monica (mult. locations available)

Why? To fix my never-ending sushi craving

What to order: the all-day menu which includes salmon sashimi and assortment of cut rolls

Price: $20

Tesse – WeHo

Why? Feels the closest to the original multi-course DineLA experience

What to order: Pre fixe menu highlights: hamachi crudo, bone marrow and flourless chocolate cake

Price: $45 and an additional $45 if you want a wine pairing

Broad Street Oyster Co. – Malibu

Why? I miss eating seafood by the beach

What to order: lobster rolls, oysters, chowder

Price: $30 for lunch / $35 for dinner
