Blog Bite: Pancake Lasagna at Roof on Wilshire

After a crazy night of drinking (aka Blogger Barhop 2012), I awoke the next morning to discover that I took home a wonderful souvenir: a hangover. Fellow blogger barhopper Savory Hunter and I decided that getting some beer and comfort food as well as Vitamin D in the form of sunshine would be just the…

Blog Bite: Blue Corn Muffins With Almond Butter at Playa

Blue Corn Muffins With Almond Butter at Playa

“You want to go to the kitchen with me, Caroline?” Nastassia Johnson (@LetMeEatCake) of Sauce LA asked me with a mischievous glint in her eye. We were standing around waiting for more passed plates at last night’s Esquire Magazine party at Playa. The schmancy party was to celebrate Chef John Sedlar being lauded by the publication as Chef…

This Sunday, Beer Belly in K-Town is kicking off its new Sunday brunch, “The Beer Belly Brunch of Shame” with a crazy menu by Chef Wes involving the likes of Lucky Charms pancakes, foie gras hollandaise and a pork belly Eggs Benedict! And if that’s not enough to tub up your own beer belly, owner…

Eating My Way Through San Francisco, Day 2 & 3

Harlot's Progress by Caroline on Crack

After the way my uber-indulgent Day One in San Francisco went, I was in Ziggy Piggy heaven. Eating and drinking without remorse. Thoughts of diets and exercise could wait til I got back in L.A. For now, every craving was sated, food babies be damned. Fortunate considering my two favorite bar/restaurants of the whole trip…

Meat Lover Marys: Bacon Mary & Foie Gras Bloody Marys at Fig Santa Monica

Before Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, I wasn’t a big fan of Bloody Marys. I just am not a fan of tomato-ey things in general. But after tasting what was perhaps the best Bloody Mary ever (the Mary fans I was with at Harry’s where the cocktail was invented can back me up), I’ve…

Zengo Santa Monica's $35 All-You-Can-Eat-and-Drink Brunch

Brunch is one of my favorite meals of the weekend. No rushing off to anywhere, you can drink as many brunch cocktails as you want and it’s all very leisurely and lovely. But I have four requirements for what constitutes a good brunch: 1) a wide variety of dishes from savory to sweet to choose…

The Eveleigh: Liquid Brunch & Hangover Cures

As someone who’s not into scenes, look-at-me-ness or celebutards, I avoid the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood like I do babies and questionable rashes on people. But when a publicist used my two favorite words (“brunch” and “cocktails”) in her pitch to entice me to check out The Eveleigh (“eh-ver-lee”) — a newish restaurant by…

Brown Bag Woodshop: Blind Tasting 24 Craft Beers + Brunch

The true measure of a hard-core beer lover? They call 24 tastes of beer in the morning brunch. And at the Woodshop 5.1 Ultimate Brown Bag Tasting and Brunch at Blue Palms Brewhouse this Saturday that’s what you’ll get the chance to do. This rare beer tasting, which is normally a private open invite beer…

Easter Roundup: Brunch, Sweets and Cocktails

Seems like everyone is eggcited (sorry) about Easter this year what with all the Easter brunches around town. But I thought I’d narrow things down to Easter brunches with a twist, with something other than the usual holiday fare. And I’ve also included cocktail and sweet treat options. Big Deal: Henry’s Hat in Studio City…

Blog Bite: New Breakfast Items at La Grande Orange

I haven’t been to La Grande Orange in Santa Monica for ages so was really happy to revisit it for brunch this weekend. And it was a good thing I did cuz they added a bunch of new items to their breakfast/brunch menu. I don’t know how new they are but the server seemed very…
