Tell us about your first impressions when you arrived.
Simonette is in the diminutive lobby space of the Palihotel. The stylish, Parisian-style all-day bistro is just what Culver City ordered.
What was the crowd like?
Studio execs from the nearby lots as well as dates and friends catching up.
What should we be drinking?
Start with a French-inspired craft cocktail with a twinge of California flare, or opt for a glass of bubbly.
Main event: the food. Give us the lowdown—especially what not to miss.
Don't miss out on the outrageously good buckwheat crepe, layered with a thick cut of Canadian bacon and a perfect egg over easy, and served with lemony frisée.
And how did the front-of-house folks treat you?
Since the space is small and the wait staff is used to studio execs on the go, you're bound to get speedy service.
What’s the real-real on why we’re coming here?
This is definitely a spot for brunch with friends or a date.
