For $18, you get all the food you want from the continental buffet, which includes fruit, house-smoked salmon, charcuterie and cheese boards with fixings like lavender mustard, granola and yogurt, a well equipped salad station, and plenty of fresh muffins and pastries, including a chocolate-covered cheesecake (because we always start our day with a slice). That price also includes a signature coffee drink like a cappuccino.
For $10 more, you get the buffet plus a choice of brunch entrée and side item. For instance, you can choose the egg white frittata with roasted tomato, asparagus and mozzarella, or the short rib hash with poached eggs, then get side of Yukon gold hash browns or house-made spicy lamb merguez. There are griddle goodies like a Belgian waffle with caramelized banana and smoked bacon, and some tantalizing main courses like a truffled croquet madame, or a steak-and-eggs sandwich on ciabatta with garlic aioli and caramelized onion.
Brunch isn’t brunch without a little kick, though, so dish out another $10 for bottomless Bloody Mary’s or “bubbly” cocktails. The “Some Like It Hot” has roasted poblano-infused tequila and housemade tomato purée, and is garnished with manchego-stuffed olives, while the “Hollywood Hills Sunrise” comes with sparkling wine, mandarin orange juice, blood orange bitters and fresh nutmeg. And you were just going to get a cappuccino…
Now for the “jazz” part of the morning. All that eating is set to the sweet, sweet strains of the Bob Gail Jazz Duo. Oh, you’re not into jazz? With everything else we just mentioned, who cares?
