    Destroyer is heaven for the Scandinavia obsessed. All dishes are brilliantly creative, tasty, and served on beautiful ceramics. Breakfast standouts: organic hen egg, banana coffee cake muffin.

    Huge fan of this place -- the avocado + burnt onion is delicious and the brown butter banana muffin is one of the best muffins I've ever had. Awesome breakfast spot in Culver City!

    I had the raw oatmeal for $7 and it was unbelievable. Subtle and delicious. You’re getting small plates at a reasonable price from a chef that charges hundreds per person elsewhere - enjoy.

    Not an Angelino, but this felt like a bit of the Spirl vibe, no? Awesome, healthy, well rounded bougie breakfast dishes. Clearly a very talented chef. Interesting lil pocket of the hood as well

    Best way to describe this place is like eating in an minimalist art museum. The plating and bowls are gorgeous as is the space. Love the chicken confit but not the beef tartare as much.

    The space's austere decor is balanced by the high art presentation of each dish. Does Destroyer serve avocado toast? Well, how about avocado confit on toasted country bread? Read more

    Everything! The dressing in the young lettuce is amazing and the chicken confit is super tasty (and filling)

    Delicious, creative, healthy food at a surprisingly affordable price. Each plate is about meal sized, but often best shared. Bring a friend and split two dishes!

    I loved the beets and the spiced bread. The rice porridge was also pretty cool but perhaps and acquired taste 😉

    Super delicious, fresh, healthy food. Hot and cold bowls full of luscious greens, grains and meats/mushrooms. Nice outdoor seating too.

    Although the service definitely needs more work, the food is really good. Especially the French toast and potato waffle.

    The food was great & innovative. The servers look like lost lambs delivering food to the wrong table, or in our case not at all. They need a new system.

    Creative and conversation starting presentations without the associated prices. Complex but minimalist. Well done.

    Kahn's food is cerebral, beautifully plated, and delicious, though perhaps more expensive than your every day breakfast and lunch spot. The coffee is excellent too. Read more

    Beautiful, yes. But not half as interesting as the hype would have you expect. Bring quarters for parking meters.

    This place will destroy your wallet, but the food is ok. It will however take a long time but will be beautifully plated.
