The Astronomer, June, and I finally made our way to Koreatown for brunch at Here’s Looking At You this past weekend. The restaurant started serving daytime fare last May, and the menu is as solid as ever—all hits, no misses, promise.
While most restaurants don’t put too much creativity into their brunch menus, relying on standbys like buttermilk pancakes, eggs Benedict, and Bloody Marys to fuel crowds, chef Jonathan Whitener is bringing fresh ideas and energy to the table.
The first dish to arrive was the whippiest, lightest chicken liver toast ($12). To reel in the richness were Basque peppers and a touch of smoked maple.
