Until 2016, LA had long been known for its shortage of quality barbecue restaurants. So it’s no surprise that the crowds line up at Maple Block for brisket smoked in-house that’s been called “the best outside of Texas.” This popular Culver City spot is great for brunch, lunch, and dinner, but is a real favorite with the after-work crowd, thanks to its fine selection of beers and wines. There’s also a covered outdoor patio for lively groups to enjoy their meals.
