Southern cooking, weird wine and taxidermy at Hatchet Hall in Culver City

Southern cooking, weird wine and taxidermy at Hatchet Hall in Culver City

Name of restaurant: Hatchet Hall, which is meant to recall Carrie Nation (the temperance activist who liked to take her hatchet to bars), and is meant to bring up vague notions of Southern cooking. 

Where you are: You're in Culver City, in the enormous space that was Waterloo & City until it closed at the end of 2014. Which means that there's lots of parking, and that if you're a regular at Roy Choi's A-Frame, you'll know how to get there (it's a few doors west).

As for the inside, the place is gorgeous. Imagine an old dining room (mirrors and silver and taxidermy) somewhere in the Deep South, update it and move it a few miles...
