BLD is a little foodie haven that never disappoints.
Located on Beverly Blvd close to the Grove, they serve up one of the best brunches in town with no pretentiousness. The wait for a table is usually around 30 minutes – I don’t think they take reservations for small parties but it is always worth it. I had the strawberry cream cheese french toast (graham cracker crumbs, whipped vanilla cream cheese, fresh strawberries) and my lovely date had the breakfast hash (fried eggs, bacon, shaved yukon gold potatoes,
bell peppers, onions, hollandaise.)
I thought the french toast would be too sweet for me – but it was so delicious I got through a good 3/4s of the it before giving up. They have 4 types of bloody marys, my drink of choice was the original “granny mary.”
I think I need to go back there today.
