Every Saturday for the next four months or so, the Roosevelt Cafe in Griffith Park will turn itself into a beer garden — meaning, mostly, that the beer menu will be expanded, hours will be extended, and a DJ will set up in the evening. The charming outdoor patio is there year-round.
The cafe is attached to the Roosevelt Golf Club, a nine-hole course that doesn't allow golf carts. So customers tend to be famished after a day of walking the famously hilly course. The regular menu, which will be available at the beer garden, is full of snacky classics such as burgers and quesadillas.
The beer garden also will offer sausages (presumably from Farmer John, the pop-up's sponsor), and beer from Iron Triangle, Garage, Coronado and other local-ish breweries. The signature offering is a sausage with all the accoutrements and a tasting of four beers, for $20.
It'll be a good post-hike spot, and a nice place for a beer before a show at the Greek Theatre, right across the street.
