We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservations and was informed that we can grab a drink at the bar. The bar area isn’t huge and we found it difficult to order a drink around others who were dining at the bar. Once we received our drinks, we were directed to the table and a wonderful woman assisted us; while providing excellent suggestions on the menu. The service, food and drinks were amazing. Looking forward to returning. More

Our brunch was delicious and had such surprisingly awesome details. My husband had the steaks and crispy eggs and the crispy egg was incredible. Perfectly cooked and wrapped in crispy fried hash browns. So good and definitely not something we could recreate at home. The bacon we shared was also spot on. Great service too. We can’t wait to try dinner and return for brunch! More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
