Dinner Diaries, Brunch Edition: Ella

The Umbrella group rolled out an impressive menu for dinner at their newest locale Ella. But, have you heard of their brunch? Lets just say they’ve rolled out the red carpet treatment for a menu as decadent and varied as only LA brunches can be.

Ella is nestled inside the Sixty Hotel in Beverly Hills where a beauitfully designed space welcomes you to pull up a chair. We stopped by Ella this past Sunday and enjoyed a live band playing tunes as we made our choices to kick off our Sunday palette. Brunch just kicked off at Ella two months ago. The brunch menu begins at 11am and concludes at 3pm. Ella also features an “all day” Saturday breakfast menu during their morning dining service from 11am-3pm.

It’s Sunday and with free time winding down there is no better pairing than an espresso or capuccino from Ella’s barista’s alongside an order of their BrĂ»leed French Toast. The dish is decadent, and more than enough to share for two. The BrĂ»leed French Toast is served with mayple syrup, powdered sugar, orange-coriander, honeycomb butter, and fresh berries. The combination of berries with the sweetness of the french toast makes for a perfect combination. The berries cut the sweetness leaving a fresh yet sweet dining experience. We highly recommend this dish as a shared app to kick off your meal.

For our mains we dove into their Proscuitto Benedict. The portion is honestly enough for two, had we known we might’ve shared to partake in more “dessert” later but we’re glad we were able to experience a variety to be able to share our favorite dishes from the new brunch menu. The Proscuitto Benedict comes with hollaindaise sauce over an English muffin with tomato conserva, proscuitto and perfeclty poached eggs topped off with chives. Alongside this decaence you’ll also enjoy potatos, and a mixed greens mini salad.

For our next main we induldged in their breakfast bacon egg and cheese salad because the high demand of their peach and burrata salad sold out before 12pm! If you’re coming for the burrata throw that order to your waiter immediately, it’s a hot commodity. We will say their Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sando was lush. Thick slices of perfectly toasted bread hold in gorgeously scrambled eggs with bacon and cheese that keeps it all perfectly together, you’re experiencing a taste of every ingredient with every bite. If you want a new twist on a breakfast classic, this is it.

And now we’ve moved onto dessert! Our sometimes favorite part of the meal got itself a creative twist. For our Brunches’ dessert we ordered a half dozen of their Oysters which are all Kumamoto Oysters. Obviously their perfect pairing counter-part was a glass of champagne. Who said dessert had to be sweet? Oysters and Champagne anyone?
