The Mondrian Hotel is where you want to go when you want to feel like you’re on a beachy vacation without the actual beach. Case and point: Herringbone – a seafood-themed, celebrity-frequented restaurant brought to you by chef Brian Malarkey. Name sound familiar? He was recently one of the boisterous chefs on the ABC food competition show, The Taste. For his first “hotel restaurant,” the atmosphere and decor is lovely, bright and very sexy. It is on the Sunset Strip, after-all.
Lucky for us girls, even though we weren’t staying at the Mondrian, we took over a nice chunk of the patio and tried out their new brunch menu. We sipped on some bubbly as we leisurely wasted our Sunday away on the outside patio. Stand out dishes were the tangy-chewy lobster roll and the Skinny Jenny, (which I couldn’t get enough of) – a citrus and lavender infused vodka mixed with lime juice and ginger beer.
The brunch menu features everything from burgers to pizza, scrambles and french toast. Even if you’re not hungry, the “Day Drinks” are enough to keep you occupied. Herringbone is perfect for a date, ladies brunch or a day a drop-in when you want to feel fancy. See below for more of what you can expect.
