New Brunch Menu at Mud Hen Tavern, Hollywood

742 N Highland Ave · Los Angeles, CA 90028 · Neighborhood · Hollywood

I try to frequent the restaurants and businesses in my neighborhood as often as I can. One local restaurant on my block was Susan Feniger’s popular cultural fusion restaurant, Street. Earlier this year, Street had a mini makeover, closed its doors and re-opened as a hip restaurant-bar meeting place called Mud Hen Tavern.

The inside is now more bar-focused and gone are those intense orange umbrellas on the outside patio. You remember… the ones that made all your instagram food pics look like you had ran them through some super duper warming filter. Instead, the décor is super-clean, bright and welcoming. In other words, very picture friendly :)

I decided to meet some of my lady friends one weekend during Mud Hen Tavern’s inaugural brunch. Susan was in the kitchen, working on the line, making sure the plates came out top notch. We girls had a blast chatting, eating and sipping bottomless bubblies.

It’s a nice menu to enjoy while catching up with old friends and sipping a sparkling cocktail or jazzed up Bloody Mary (there are 7 different ones to choose from). The dishes you can expect from the brunch menu are light, full of fun flavors, and many are even are vegetarian friendly.

Brunch details: 

Every Saturday and Sunday 11-3
Limitless Sparkling Cocktails
Amazing Bloody Mary Menu
Fresh Juices & Smoothies
Lots of Vegan and Vegetarian Options
Free Parking on Highland and neighborhood streets

Some standouts for me were the Falafel Dog, the Espresso Maple with Sea Salt & Tangerine Marmalade Toast, Bacon and Cheddar Drop Biscuits and the Stuffed Hashbrowns. Pictures of these and other menu items below.
