LA Weekly's Description

There can be beauty even in a quick-serve office-building canteen - Josiah Citrin and Rafael Lunetta taught us that at Lemon Moon. But even in downtown Culver City, a neighborhood as thick with great sandwich shops as practically anywhere outside Rosemead's banh mi district, the Point is pretty great. The slick cafeteria is the newest project of Kazuto Matsusaka and Vicki Fan, who run the nearby bistro Beacon. Pressed sandwiches, organic miso soup, ancho-chile chicken-salad wraps, etc., are some of the lunch basics. There are omelets and homemade granola in the morning, and microwavable meals of meat loaf or stuffed chicken breast to take home at night. But the basic currency at the Point is the make-your-own salad station. Once you master the intricate matrix of preferences you tick off from a checklist, the mix of superfresh lettuces and optional ingredients ends up running everywhere from a classic tuna nicoise to a Japanese-ish salad with miso and edamame to a sweet Chinese-tinged salad. And the butterscotch pudding may be the best I've tasted in Los Angeles since Wolfgang Puck's Eureka shut its doors.

    Possibly my favorite grilled cheese ever. Dip in the tomato soup, but beware! It's very hot.

    The Best... Turkey Meatloaf Sandwich in Town! Great Staff, Owner!

    Problems with the "new" point. Limited Menu and slow service.

    Bobby and staff are amazing! They understand that the yardstic of a successful business is customer service. I appreciate that and will remain a customer for life. Their food rocks!

    The Southwest Salad is the truth.
