This whimsical Downtown Culver City spot is the brainchild of co-owners Macks Collins and Bryan Kidwell, who cut their teeth at Michelin-starred restaurants and launched the highly lauded Mad Pambazos food truck in LA. At Piccalilli, the eye-popping decor—lush plant life, bluish-purple lowlights, butterfly motifs—is as vibrant and adventurous as the food itself. Inspired by everything from South Carolina Lowcountry (Collins is an SC native) to Southeast Asia, the menu is bursting with sit-up-and-take-notice flavors: Green Papaya Salad punched up with tamarind vinaigrette, Brussels Sprouts spiced with Korean chili, Potato Wedges dipped in curry salt and sambal aioli, and Tender Miso Pork Jowl brightened up by house ponzu sauce. Sunday brunch brings the same energy with a few additions you won’t find on the dinner menu, like savory toast with umami-rich Chinese black bean sauce and a sweet version slathered with kumquat marmalade and crème fraîche. Drinks are no afterthought either; Piccalilli’s mixologists concoct house-made syrups and liquor infusions on site for a rotating menu of creative craft cocktails.

Only available on Sundays from 12–2 pm, Piccalilli chef-owners and BFFs Macks Collins and Bryan Kidwell have created a simple yet compelling menu that acts as a tribute to their Southern upbringings while also enveloping in Asian-inspired flavors. The result is dishes like their Thai Chicken Katsu with pickled bird chili, aromatics, chicken fat, and market greens, and a Wok Crepe with maple cajeta, cinnamon apples, and house-made whipped cream. Brunch cocktails include a pineapple mimosa with fresh pineapple juice and OJ, a house Bloody Mary, and an iced Vietnamese coffee that’s spiked with bourbon.

Freewheeling food truck grads Macks Collins and Bryan Kidwell once again fire up the patio at their downtown Culver restaurant to serve Asian-influenced comfort food. Their Thai-inspired chicken katsu is reason enough to visit, featuring pounded, panko-coated thigh meat showered with potent pickled bird’s eye chiles. The duo has punctuated their streamlined menu with even more treasures and the five-spice pork is a fun riff on Peking duck served with classic duck accompaniments and pan-fried roti.
