It took me long enough, but I’ve managed to find my way over with a little help from the Hungry Onion board, where I posted the following topic: https://www.hungryonion.org/t/dtla-la-chapter-in-the-ace-good-for-brunch/6046
BTW, I’m glad to see that the action is swinging in this subforum!
I wanted to follow-up on my question linked above re. LA Chapter… y/n?
I’m hip to other brunching high-marks in DTLA from Ledlow to GCM, but I’m just curious how reliable the Ace Hotel’s kitchen is? Any good/bad/indifferent experience lately?
Second, can anyone offer some feedback on Marlowe Bar in W.Hollywood; both relating to food and drink?
I’ve had it on my radar since it opened last year and I can’t recall seeing much, if anything, in the way of discussion on the usual forums. No results coming up in old CH searches either… Just wondering if that’s a warning?
I’m also looking for an in-law-free dinner suggestion for the night of our arrival. We’ll be blowing straight in on the 5 (can this weekend get any better?) and with the distance and hours, I’d like to not stray too far from the hwy. Anything from N.LA to Fullerton, I guess - I’ll offer a strict 15 min. leeway for a detour in any direction; ideally less. I’m not looking to drag out the driving time any longer. Anything goes food-wise; preferably under $60 a head. Stiff drinks are a plus.
This is a separate request from my OC food inquiry, just to clarify.
Thanks very much for any input and I’m glad to have stumbled over here.
