Friday 5: Brunch in Los Angeles
It’s National Brunch Month. In honor of this delicious occasion, we’re sharing a few beloved brunch destinations every Friday in April, so you can make informed weekend plans. What’s not to love about bloody marys, buttermilk biscuits & gravy, and plates of chilaquiles? Let’s brunch in Los Angeles.
The Brunch Buffet is Back
Chef Bret Thompson and Lucy Thompson-Ramirez are the husband-and-wife team bringing coastal Mexican cuisine to downtown LA. Inspired by their travels to Baja, Pez offers an ultimate cantina experience. The Sunday brunch buffet features horchata French toast, chilaquiles, and pitchers of guava margaritas.
Get a taste of Southern hospitality at Blaqhaus. Their weekend brunch includes all of the Southern classics that you crave, from chicken & waffles to catfish & grits. In the mood for something sweet? Opt for the Bananas Foster French Toast with glazed candied pecans.
Located inside of the former rectory building of Vibiana, Redbird offers a unique dining space with a storied history. Here, you can dine beneath the retractable roof with views of the bell tower. The brunch menu features Basque baked eggs, Maine lobster congee, and cured salmon tartines. Easter brunch reservations are available now.
A Ranch-Inspired Brunch
Bull & Butterfly is a California steakhouse, reimagined. With influences from Paso Robles to the Valley of Guadalupe, both the menu and the décor feel lighter and breezier than your classic steakhouse. The brunch menu includes smoked salmon platters, coal-oven baked shakshuka, and wood-fired steak with cheddar eggs.
Venture to Santa Ana over the weekend for Perla’s Mariachi Brunch. This charming restaurant is run by a mother-daughter duo on a mission to transport guests to the magical corners of Mexico. Kick back over fresh ceviche, enchiladas de mole, and huevos con chorizo while enjoying live mariachi music.
