The prime beef picadillo with a sunny side up egg is a house favorite.

Downtown Los Angeles' Faith and Flower is the perfect destination for an intimate first date, a burger and drinks with friends at the bar, or a special celebration with family. Now it is also a great place to enjoy weekend brunch.

Chef Michael Hung’s new menu reflects the diverse palette of Faith and Flower’s diners. The atmosphere remains stunning, with enormously high dining rooms decorated in ornate mirrors, fancy wallpaper, romantic candles, and elegant chandeliers.

A variety of raw dishes offered include a daily selection of oysters; kanpachi ceviche with ginger beer and potato chips; tuna carpaccio with pickled fennel; and a scallop ceviche. Enjoy your brunch with a strong bloody mary, mimosa, or signature cocktail, such as the Shiso Easy with tequila blanco, Contratto Blanco, Shiso, cucumber, and lime.

Diners in the mood for eggs can choose from an Iberian style frittata, prime beef picadillo with a sunny side up egg; a downtown version of eggs benedict with chorizo hash and Cotija cheese; or a smoked trout benedict with poached eggs and trout caviar. 

Guests with a sweet tooth can savor the malted waffle with a mixed berry and Riesling compote; bourbon pancakes with stewed cherries; a roasted apricot tartine; and a very unique kimchee cornbread. 

For heartier appetites, the eggs benedict and four cheese pizza are savory and satisfying, and so are the handmade cavatelli with hoisin braised pork cheek sugo, and the wood oven roasted pork loin. There are also plenty of desserts including a strawberry cake, Greek yogurt panna cotta, milk chocolate mousse, and pistachio and hazelnut praline ice cream pops.

The new innovative menu, together with the beautiful atmosphere, makes Faith and Flower a must for those seeking a relaxed, elegant, and satisfying stop for weekend brunch.
