Public School 310 Restaurant Opening this Fall in Culver City

Public School 310, a full-service restaurant/bar concept focusing on “an education in the art of beer and food,” is set to open in early November in the heart of downtown Culver City.

Ever since shut its doors this Spring, there has been speculation about what would take its place and .

Patch can now confirm that is indeed true. Public School 310, a full service restaurant/bar concept focusing on “An Education in the Art of Beer and Food” will open at the corner of Culver Boulevard and Main Street in early November 2012.

Although it is taking over the Fraiche premises, the building will be completely revamped to welcome PS 310 and its unique restaurant and bar concept.

The space is being designed by George Kelly and Jen Smith of Los Angeles-based Kelly Architects, and according to an official press release, “the design is meant to offer something to everyone and trigger that nostalgic memory of a classroom: the use of semi-precious materials (like tile, wood and steel) juxtaposed with more refined polished chrome furniture and light fixtures and the use of common school equipment as an art installation.”

“We wanted to emphasize the restaurant’s goal of offering ‘an education in the art of beer and food’ by using the materials of classrooms from a time when the notion of ‘school’ was timeless, respected and appreciated,” George Kelly stated in a release. “We also want to give the guests a direct view of how the meals are being prepared by providing ‘chef’ seats directly adjacent to the large pass through opening at the glass enclosed kitchen.” “ 

The 125-seat eatery is the brainchild of local restaurateur Bob Spivak, who founded The Grill on the Alley and the Daily Grill restaurants. PS 310 will feature craft beers from around the world and a menu created by Executive Chef Phil Kastel.

“Culver City is home to many of the LA foodie community’s favorite spots and we are proud to announce that we will soon be part of that community with our new restaurant Public School 310,” Spivak stated in an official press release.

The restaurant promises fresh ingredients, including those sourced from local Farmer’s Markets including the weekly Culver City market on Main Street on Tuesday afternoons. Featured menu items will include: Cauliflower Gratin with Crispy Speck, Roasted Beets with Ricotta Salata, Lamb Bolognaise, Pressed Chicken with White Bean Ragu, Cioppino with Grilled Lavan.

“Recess,” aka happy hour, will have daily special menu items priced at $2, $4 and $6 and will include such stapes as Margherita Lavash Pizza, Parmesan Truffle Fries and Tres Adobo Tacos. The bar will offer ongoing “Night School” classes such as beer pairings and spirits and seasonal cocktail tastings.

The original beer list was developed with the help of beer connoisseur Hallie Beaune of thebeerchicks.com and co-author of The Naked Pint. Additionally, the bar will feature artisanal cocktails inspired by the classics and wines “on tap” served from wine kegs.

PS310 will be open for lunch and dinner serving till midnight, seven days a week. For more information, visit ww.PSonTap.com

What do you think of Fraiche's replacement? One of our Facebook readers said she was not happy with another establishment serving alcohol in Culver City and would rather see a kid-friendly eatery and a return to the "Mayberry" feel of the city. Do you agree?

Sounds great to me. People come to downtown Culver City for a special dining experience. There are plenty of kid friendly restaurants in and around Culver City. Oh, Mayberry didn't have restaurants. In that era families ate together at home.
