Dockside at Playa Provisions

restaurant - salads

Playa Provisions is like my favorite Barbie of all time – Day-to-Night.  A totally different experience once the sun sets.

(My mentioning Barbie has nothing to do with the stunning blonde who was my date.)

DSCN6508 Kailey is a longtime blog friend (we both started our sites around the same time) and she now works for the PR company that reps Playa Provisions.  Dockside is their high-end restaurant open for happy hour, dinner, and weekend brunch.

We started off with Salt Cod Clam Chowder, with braised bacon in a Sourdough Bread Bowl…

Field Trip

lunch - restaurant - salads - vegetarian

Field Trip recently opened up in the Farmer’s Kitchen space, very close to Abe’s new BuzzFeed Office off of Vine Street in Hollywood.

The talent of one of my favorite bakers, Sarah (Hart and the Hunter, Flores and the Ladies Gunboat Society) is on display there.

IMG_7639 We wound up ordering off the menu – all seasonal stuff…
IMG_7652…Abe had an omelet and I got the Field Salad, which contains seasonal veggies, corn, and pickles.  Pickles make a salad.

The breakfast menu is small, but filled with many good choices.

Karla opted for waffles…
