When we first moved to Los Angeles six years ago, we often went to Grub for brunch. Housed in a 1920’s duplex, the vibe is home-y and chill.
Took a while, but we finally returned for their nearly 2-year-old dinner service.
The place is so cozy at night – and reservations for four were a cinch!
We munched on carrot sticks n cucumber slices with pretzels and ranch dip while waiting for our orders
I got the “Beet’s the Alternative” Salad – left off the Gorgonzola, added some chicken
A very generous portion of herb-seasoned beets with fresh basil, spiced pecans…
…Mixed Greens tossed in Balsamic Molasses Vinaigrette
Tried a bite of Patrick’s potatoes…
…and Johanna’s Mac-n-Cheese with Jalapeño-Bacon
Abe’s burger had to be sent back to the kitchen – a Garbonzo-Bean-Risotto-Garden-Patty with cheddar, BBQ sauce, and caramelized onions that he ordered vegetarian-ized (but came out with bacon)
I taste-tested it to make sure there was none on the new version…
…stole some Black Pepper Potato Chips too
Using my favorite App, I scored us a free dessert!
(We made sure they remembered to bring the bacon on the side.)
A Hershey’s bar grilled between bread with whipped cream and chocolate sauce
The perfect size for 4
I went back for more “crack bacon” – it’s a secret recipe but I’ve a feeling it’s similar to this one
Glad we returned – pretty sure it can still be a nightmare during weekend brunch, but at night, it reminded me of places in Austin that we loved – not a hole-in-the-wall, nor a trendy/scene-y restaurant…
…just good grub.
