Hitting brunch in LA this weekend? No-brainer. Where you're hitting brunch in LA this weekend? That's more of a some-brainer. Or at least, it is for everyone not reading this list of 11 new LA brunches you absolutely have to hit this weekend. Bazinga.
Larchmont Village It's got an egg-topped, Vietnamese-flavored farro, a peanut-butter crunch French toast called "The Stoner" for some reason, and one of the best new burgers in LA. If you only go to one of these 11, this is probably the one you want to go to.
Santa Monica This recently opened new-American spot also recently opened weekend brunch, and with it, a crab & avocado tartine, a wood-grilled bavette steak & eggs, and cocktails (cocktails!!) like a St. Germaine-and-togarashi-laden michelada.
Silverlake If you're looking to get your new Middle Eastern brunch on, venture to this, well, Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant, which is doing stuff like egg-topped tomato stew known as shakshuka and orange blossom-flavored five-grain pancakes.
Larchmont Village The space formerly known as Girasole has been rebranded as Vernetti, but the focus is still Italian-ish: their just-launched brunch includes a morning carbonara with black pepper, guanciale, and egg, and a creamy sausage-laden biscuits and gravy.
Hollywood The 10-year-old Peruvian staple just rejiggered its weekend menu, which means vaguely ethnic-sounding dishes like panettone French toast (panettone = sweeter bread) and pichuberry pancakes, which are cherry-esque.
Manhattan Beach This wood-laden, Italian-inspired restaurant's new breakfast-meets-lunch options include Nutella toast with strawberries & sea salt (Hey. O.), a smoked fish board with house-made bagels, and wood oven-baked eggs with grilled bread.
