Milo & Olive Has Me Loving Grits, Sausage, Smoked Salmon – Even Cabbage!
Milo & Olive never ceases to impress me. I can totally see why LA Weekly’s Squid Ink just named them to be one of the Top 10 Brunch Spots in LA … so good, in fact, that I’ve been there twice over the last two weekends … and am pining away for my next chance to go.
Not intending to write about it (but inspired to do so because of the experience), I only have one photo of my entree – the Anson Mills Grits & Eggs, which they serve with House Made (of course) Pork Belly Sausage and Braised Greens. While every element was outstanding, the Sausage is definitive DeathbedFood®.
Along with me this last visit were friends who enjoyed the Breakfast Sandwich … a much too mundane name for a glorious dish comprised of House Cured (of course) Salmon, Creamy Scrambled Eggs, Chives and Croissant. With Zoe Nathan’s finesse with pastry and what may be the best smoked salmon in town, do not miss THIS sandwich.
Last but not least, the Farmers Market Fritatta which has Green Cabbage, Green Olives and Drake’s Farm Goat Cheese. Once I saw the baby goats at Drake’s, I’ve never been the same. Now, any time I see Drake’s Farm on a menu or at a Farmer’s Market, I must get it. Trust me, Milo’s Fritatta will make anyone join Team Cabbage.
Dear Milo & Olive, thank you for yet another stunning meal. I will see you again very, VERY soon! xoDBF
