kind of boring

Of course, I shoulda gone to Jar before my onset of boredom with American food.

We went for brunch. I kept thinking the pot roast surely must be pork. But no, it’s beef. There was nothing else for me to eat. That is, nothing else looked interesting to me. It came down to the chilaquiles or lobster benedict. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $12 for chilaquiles. So instead, I paid $16 for the lobster benedict.

They tried to jazz up eggs benedict:
Lobster: great idea.
House made char siu: nice touch, it was ok.
Pea leaves: I love love pea leaves. Love the fresh sweetness, love the texture, how the tender leaves hold their texture even after cooking. But the problem is, that beautiful sweetness overpowered everything. It rendered the lobster bearnaise completely flavorless. And it completely dominates my memory of this dish.
Plus I’ve had pea leaves and char siu hundreds of times, so it just wasn’t special. The eggs were perfectly poached.

My $12 bloody mary was an overpriced disappointment. The $4 coffee was very good.
I thought most of the brunch items were overpriced. The dinner menu doesn’t appeal to me either.

like your mom makes... if she could cook 10x better

This is one of my favorite places to eat in LA. on Monday's she does Mozzarella Mondays and they have cheese dishes... and i LOVE cheese . The chef is very steakhouse, but they have an awesome brunch on Sundays.
