DCWD Travels: Gjusta, LA

Neighborhood: Los Angeles

This place is charming. This place is hipster. This place is relaxed. This place has enough options to let you eat here all day. And incidentally, this is the kind of place where you can casually sit next to Emilia Clarke taking in the sun while you brunch.

You've got several options when you walk into Gjusta, all of which are ordered like meat in a deli: bakery, breakfast, sandwiches, beverages/coffee. Grab a number, order your jam, lounge outside. The result is an experience that feels casual and chill, and food that is fresh and diverse. There's Official Co-Writer/Wife Texas's typically LA bowl - brown rice, wild mushrooms,  greens, fermented chili, and a fried egg, which compares gracefully with the crosstown sqirl's; it's funky and weird and delicious.

There's my typical breakfast sandwich - a sausage, egg, and cheddar on a huge biscuit - one that is only rivaled in my memory by the same at Glen's. When a biscuit is the star, you know you're in for a treat.

And there's Official Friend of DCWD CC's traditional croque madame, oozing and gooey and rich. All three of them would have satisfied any of the three of us; that all three could be found in the same kitchen is nothing short of splendid.

The Verdict

Eff yea.

The reason I liked here is that these Los Angeles event venues are so intimate and personable and while having astounding atmosphere! Really more suited and perfect for experiencing great food and having a good time.
