Aside from baby showers and birthday luncheons, there are really too few excuses to drink before the sun starts to set. Sunday brunch, however, is your once weekly answer to your call for late morning alcohol – Bloody Mary or Mimosa, anyone? Los Angeles is home to many a great brunch spot where grazing (a little hungover) at 3:00 p.m. doesn’t signify laziness so much as it does a certain haute chicness. Et voila, the most haute 5 brunch spots are revealed…
The Hall Brasserie at Palihouse Holloway
There’s not much to gripe about when sitting in brasserie chairs, sipping an espresso, and looking around the Hall Brasserie’s charming courtyard. It feels like you’re in some hybrid city – a warmer version of London or Paris. Every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Chef Brandon Collins hosts a traditional Roast Sunday Lunch to make you feel like a Brit, while their simple brunch menu offers variations on the Benedict, Belgian Waffles, a Strozzapreti Pasta, topped off with a Gooseberry Crème Brulee. The great thing about brunch at the Hall is that it can so easily melt into drinks at the Palihouse Holloway’s lounge just inside.
The Hall Brasserie at the Palihouse Holloway is located at 8465 Holloway Dr. in West Hollywood. (323) 656-4020
