Brunch With the Jetset Extra L.A. Insiders
Ahhh, Brunch. It’s a luxurious Sunday out relaxing with friends over fun conversation, a cocktail, and great food.
I decided it was time for us to put some names to the faces for our insiders. At Jetset Extra we love and appreciate the contributions our insiders make to our site. They help make Jetset Extra an extraordinary website full of interesting editorial and amazing images that capture the imagination and whisk us away to that destination we’ve been longing to see.
L.A. is the town where I live, so I thought I would reach out to the local crowd first and invite them to the newest rooftop restaurant in town, The Roof on Wilshire. While at the L.A. Food and Wine show, Bryan Van Gorder (L.A. Insider) and I met chef/owner Eric Greenspan, who extended an invitation to come and dine any time. The Roof on Wilshire offers a great Sunday brunch and full bar. If you like a Bloody Mary, you will love theirs. The have a secret ingredient that gives this drink a great bite. Their Berry Belini isn’t too shabby either.
Chef Greenspan did not fail to impress us with his menu. We ordered one of everything on the menu (and why not?): pancake lasagna with tender fluffy pancakes layered with all the wonderful things we know and love as breakfast; German pancakes with lime, almonds, and powdered sugar; the most incredible egg sandwich ever (recommended to me by a guy in the elevator on my way up to the roof top); and the list goes on and on. Needless to say, we were stuffed, a little tipsy, and completely satisfied.
Have I mentioned the view yet? There is an amazing view of Los Angeles from this rooftop. The first thing everyone mentions is how beautiful the mountains are, and how refreshing it is to get such an amazing view of the city where we live? The rooftop is also host to the pool deck. It has a very “Hollywood” feel while still being intimate and casual.
Thank you, Los Angeles Jetset Insiders who were able to make it. It was such a pleasure to meet you and spend a beautiful Sunday morning getting to know you and sharing some great travel stories.
