Grub

March 31, 2015

After hearing the rave reviews I decided to go to Grub with my family for brunch.

The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:

Good, not great.
The “good, not great” says it all. Nothing special, the grilled cheese was the only “great” part.

The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

We arrived at a perfect time, shortly after we were seated a bit of a crowd followed and people had to wait. We sat outside (80 degree weather, thank you LA), they have a cute little patio that is shaded, but gets all the natural light. If you are a larger party I would suggest going at an off time because they only have 2 tables for larger parties outdoors. The service was just okay, but the food was timely.

What we ate:

  • Grilled Cheese ($13.50)
  • French Toast ($10.99)
  • Millionaire’s bacon ($5.25)

Brunch Hours
Sat – Sun  9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Grub, los angeles, restaurant review, Hollywood, grilled cheese, tomato soup

The grilled cheese was the best dish ordered. It was very cheese and the tomato soup was really good. It would’ve been a real winner with better bread, but it was very tasty nonetheless.

My French toast, which I was told is a must-order, disappointed. The croissant sounded very promising, but it was flat and while it wasn’t soggy, it didn’t boast any of the elements that make a croissant so great. The best part was the raspberry butter, but the whole dish was just sort of blah.

The bacon came in a generous portion, but I wasn’t a fan. The flavor was too intense to eat it all and it wasn’t crispy.The restaurant was just okay and I don’t think I’ll be going back.
