1. Yamashiro Hollywood
While evening outdoor is ramping up again at the iconic Hollywood restaurant, daytime hours are left to the Griddle Cafe brunch experts, currently popping up here. Those plate-size red-velvet pancakes, massive omelets, mimosas, and Bloody Marys the local institution is known for are available Wednesday through Sunday mornings, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. All that and a view? L.A. perfection.
Dining status: Walk-ins only are available for the daytime Griddle Cafe residency; reservations are mandatory for Yamashiro at night. Delivery and pickup are still available. Find more info here.
