The Greyhound

dessert - lunch - restaurant

Return to Highland Park! I’m rarely in that ‘hood but found myself back after Sunday’s brunch

The Greyhound is a bar that opened earlier this year.  I was invited to check them out.

Arrived at noon on a Monday, so no alcohol for me.  Well, never alcohol for me

…but I did find a willing partner!

Although they have plenty of beers/wine, their cocktail menu is quite extensive.  Jenny was brought one that was “dry and citrus, but spirit forward.”  This was “La Grande Roja” – Tequila Cabez, Maestro Dobel Tequila, Aperol, Vanilla Bean Syrup, Lime, and Atomized Citrus Oil.

Now on to the part I’m interested in…

…BACON! Or, Single Malt Scotch-Cured, House-Smoked Pork Belly.

The owners have roots in Father’s Office so of course they have a great burger…

…this one IS actually customizable, and only $8 with a beer during Happy Hour.

Vegetarians, there’s a burger on the menu for you too – I didn’t try it, but I can vouch for this perfect cornbread, a recipe from owner Mateo’s dad.

Particularly giddy about their dessert menu – featuring goodies by Quenelle.

Palm Sugar Blondie (above) and Red Velvet Cake…

…everything you want in a neighborhood bar, as far as I’m concerned.

Even though Highland Park isn’t exactly around the corner from me (and I don’t drink), I’ll definitely be back.  I love the casual vibe, the food is solid, and Jenny’s a regular!

    Hi Lynn! Have you ever tried Good Eggs? https://www.goodeggs.com/la I was on the site today and thought of you because the melons were very reasonably priced.
