Sunday! Sunday! Sunday Brunch!
The party was called for Noon. Traffic was light and I was early. It was a beautiful day in Studio City. Street parking was easy and it’s free on Sunday.
Sunday Brunch at Bistro Garden at the Center at Coldwater on Ventura Boulevard just west of Coldwater Canyon.
BISTRO GARDEN, Studio City
It’s a beautiful restaurant space, light and airy with very high glass ceilings. We commented that it feels like “New Orleans” or “Disneyland” inside (I was reminded of the River Belle Cafe or Union Plaza restaurants).
Hats off to the Piano Player! He played beautifully all through the brunch, the tunes were familiar, but it was never obnoxious.
We were a party of Ten and the service was very good. The waitstaff was attentive and very professional.
They offered champagne or a mimosa as a starter, along with baskets of bread. There was sourdough, banana bread, muffins and mini-cinnamon rolls to eat.
They have a nice brunch menu. We skipped the appetizers and I ordered Eggs Benedict with Canadian Bacon, potatoes, and substituted fresh fruit for the tomato slices. I also pre-ordered a chocolate souffle’ for dessert.
The eggs benedict was good, but not great. The baked goods and the souffle’ were excellent. The dining room was a little warm where I was sitting because of the sun shining thorough the glass ceiling. We had a good time and ate a lot of food.
The restaurant is well established and the clientele is definite “older” and was mostly female. I was reminded of the “ladies who lunch”, which is a distinct class of patron in Los Angeles, and most everyone was celebrating a special occasion too. I enjoyed the party, the company, and the service. The menu was standard brunch fare and the food was good, if not great. It was a very nice party.
