Best Post-Hookup Brunch Los Angeles 2013 

Sycamore Kitchen

Lazy weekend mornings when you wake up with a stranger in your bed can be either a blessing or a curse. Either way, it might be best to get brunch together. Skip places with long lines and consider Sycamore Kitchen. Impress your accidental plus-one on the trek over with fun foodist facts. Like how co-owner and pastry chef Karen Hatfield's chocolate chip rye cookies and blackberry almond tarts are routinely lauded as some of the best in the city. And that they might pair well with the ricotta-and-buckwheat blintzes or the insanely good double pork belly B-LTA sandwiches. Everything is ordered at the counter, which can help avoid the awkward who's-treating-whom conversation. Even better: The food arrives at the table quickly enough that either of you can get the hell out of there fast. 143 S. La Brea Ave., Fairfax District. (323) 939-0151, thesycamorekitchen.com. —Whitney Friedlander
