If one of your new year's resolutions is to get your Omega 3 fatty acids, perhaps the smoked herring, crisped with garlic, capers, red onion, sunny egg on country bread with house-made sriracha ($16) might be the way to go. Other highlights include the spicy Chorizo with navy beans, braised greens, jalapeno-cilantro sauce, slow cooked egg, and crispy bread ($15) and a French Toast with vanilla anglaise, maple glazed apples, and country butter ($14).
Those in search of a little more decadence might opt for the warm black truffle parfait with slow cooked egg, crispy potatoes, chives, brioche soldiers, and smoky onion soubise or oysters with lime juice and spice of life hot sauce. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Enjoy a postprandial stroll to check out Ai Weiwei's bronzed animal heads at the LACMA and you've managed to have both a little culture and a great meal. Not a bad way to start 2012. Visit PatinaGroup.com to learn more.
