Top Picks… Brunch in LA
Arguably the most important meal of the week in Los Angeles, brunch is also becoming one of the most stylish. Network with biz contacts, socialise with pals, or cosy up with your honey over prettily plated morsels that tick all the trend boxes at these delicious see-and-be-scene weekend destinations…
The hottest table in town right now, seafood-centric rooftop Catch teams jaw-dropping WeHo views with shareable, sustainable bites. Sip on iced almond coffee or green juice while savouring smashed avo on toast, lobster rolls, black cod wraps or the indulgent Anytime Waffle Tower. Vegan and gluten-free options add halos.
Sizzlin’ hot La Brea churrascaria Odys + Penelope has a wood-fired smoker, Brazilian barbecue and open grill, serving flame-finessed fare in a hip mod-rustic space. Weekend brunch spans small starters, mains, sides and sandwiches; wrap your chops around Nduja sausage with potato hash, escarole, cipollini onion and fried organic eggs.
Epically tasty Fairfax hottie Animal inhabits a pared-back, contempo interior that will appeal to styley types. Brunch draws on local and organic produce, with meat-centric, daring foodie ingredients such as pig’s ear, bone marrow sushi rice and foie gras. Multi-culti culinary offerings span poutine, pastrami and pork katsu.
Don’t miss the recently returned popular w/end brunch menu at Salt's Cure, where all ingreds are grown or raised in Cali, and even butchered in-house. Local, sustainable fish and farm produce star. Smoked salmon with radish, red onion and sour cream or a Waldorf smoked-ham sandwich will sort you out. Book ahead!
