Hollywood Brunch Hunt!

 

If it's brunch you're looking for you'll find it in Hollywood.  From the Jazz Brunch at Twist in the Hollywood Renaissance to the rustic choices at Fabiolus, there's something for every palate and wallet.

            Although at the top of our price range, the vast buffet assortment offered at Twist includes incomparable jazz performed by some of the best jazz musicians in the city make it a bargain.  Each Sunday KJAZZ radio personality, Bubba Jackson, emcees and the room fills with jazz aficionados.  The champagne flows freely as does the music.  Choose your favorites from cooked to order omelets, eggs benedict, fresh waffles, carved prime rib, hot entrees-all you can eat and drink. You'll want to come early and linger.  It will take a while to work your way through the buffet anyway.

            Nestled into the neighborhood in the Media District, the unassuming Grub is a local favorite.  The menu is imaginative and delicious.  No buffet here.  Each delectable entre comes hot from the kitchen.   Host and Celebrity Chef Betty Frazier's food is always a crowd pleaser whether it's served her in the unassuming patio and dining room or at a true Hollywood catered event.  Once you relax on the patio with a cool lemon, basil champagne cocktail and indulge in their signature egg scrambles, crispy garlic roasted potatoes and much-publicized "Crack Bacon", you'll know what becoming a Grubaholic is all about!

            Sunday Brunch at Fabiolus is a family affair.  At $10, the buffet is reminiscent of a Verona holiday sprinkled with American favorites.  The choice of delicious roast pork, frittata, ensalata caprese, sautéed Italian sausage and onions alongside bacon, pancakes, scrambled eggs and fruit assures that there's something for every taste and age.  Yes, there are mimosas and, of course, plenty of pinot grigio. Whether you sit close to the buffet in the main dining room, in the inside patio or al fresco to get some rays, the casual ambiance, great food and affordable price make Fabiolus a favorite for everyone.
