When we think brunch-friendly L.A., three elements come to mind: a pleasant outdoor dining space, a range of sweet and savory dishes and perhaps a great cocktail.
The culinary team behind Post & Beam nails all three at Abbot Kinney's Willie Jane, where a California seasonal setting meets Southern coastal cuisine.
We bypassed the communal tables up front and headed straight for the back garden. Lush palms, cornflower blue wicker chairs and antique wall sconces formed a sultry backdrop for bottomless mimosas ($15). We enjoyed them with deviled eggs topped by marinated shrimp with lemon aioli ($7) and a marinated beet salad with burrata, shaved fennel and citrus ($8).
You can hear the soothing fountain in the adjacent Dr. Jerry’s Sculpture Gardens Nursery while relaxing over decadent shrimp, grits and eggs served with bacon and Fresno chiles ($16). A smoked-trout-and-eggs benedict with braised collards and mustard hollandaise ($14) made us love the brunch classic anew.
On Saturday, a chef’s garden opened next door, supplying fresh produce to both the restaurant and the neighborhood. Now that's Southern hospitality.
