Its BruncHaim down at Red Hill in Echo Park, folks. The fine people at Red Hill have finally done it! Fancy foodie fare at bargain prices. Red Hill 100% competes with many of the niche foodie restaurants popping up around Venice and Santa Monica, but you’ll be hard pressed to find an entree over $18 (for dinner, $14 for brunch).
I stumbled upon this eatery for dinner one evening and was so in love with their menu, that I asked my server for a glance at the brunch menu. After I picked my salivating jaw up off the ground, I glanced at my lady lover and told her “we be breakin’ fast here!”
Red Hill breaks down their menu pretty efficiently between First (appetizers), Second (tapas style plates) and Third (entree) courses. Their dishes do not have conventional names, but rather a simple yet tantalizing list of ingredients. And that is where they get you. Ingredients! The spectrum is just about covered with all types of dishes. You can nosh on something simple like CINNAMON RAISIN FRENCH TOAST, FRESH FRUIT or take your tastebuds for a culinary dance chowing down on MUSSELS & FRIES, SPICY SAUSAGE, WHITE WINE, CRÈME FRAÎCHE, THYME, SPICY AIOLI.
Trying to explain Red Hill is like attempting to crack some wicked analogy on your SAT. Red Hill is simple, yet extravagant food for thought. Or as Kramer would have put it, “an orgiastic feast for the senses.”
Even if you’re a west sider, I highly recommend you trek your ass on down to Echo Park and feast at Red Hill. If you’re not satisfied, I’ll reimburse your gas money!
