LA Weekly's Second Annual Pancake Breakfast: An Update
Fig's lemon-ricotta pancakes at the 2011 Pancake Breakfast
A reminder that you possibly have something to do on Sunday, August 5, from around 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. That is, if your idea of fun is hanging out in a gorgeous deconsecrated church and eating what some of the city's best chefs feel like cooking you for breakfast. LA Weekly's second annual Pancake Breakfast is fast approaching. And in addition to the restaurants you already knew about (Salt's Cure, Handsome Coffee, Langer's, The Nickel Diner, Euro Pane, etc.), there are also a few more coming.
Gottsui will be bringing Angus beef okonomiyaki and beef curry pancakes. Gary Menes' pop-up Le Comptoir will be serving sourdough blini with corn and smoked onions. Canele will have pork belly bánh mì. And Cafecito Organico will be bringing, well, what you'd think they'd be bringing: lots of terrific coffee. And if caffeine isn't your thing, there will be an open bar serving lots of incomprehensibly lovely things (Sino Tequila Sunrises, Bloody Marias, Kinky Liqueur Mimosas, etc.). What else? BigStarBQ will play a short set, and you can preserve the moment for posterity in a photo booth. Still life with pancake, if you will.
Tickets are $30 and are available right here. No tickets will be sold at the door. (Please remember that.)
