Eva Restaurant, Mid-City

We've never been big on going out for brunch on Sundays, but after hearing so many great things about the Sunday brunch at Eva Restaurant, we decided to check it out. The brunch menu looked good and the fact that they serve bottomless mimosas was a nice bonus. The waiter informed us that the chef gets all the ingredients from the Hollywood farmer's market.

Butter lettuce
Butter lettuce is definitely one of my favorites out of the lettuce family and this was from Coleman farms. Topped with sliced radish, Parmesan cheese and mustard vinaigrette, it was a  tasty start to brunch.

Fresh fruit
The fresh fruit were all from the Sunday farmers market in Hollywood. Everything tasted like they were picked at their peak.

Fried chicken
The organic fried chicken had a fairly thick batter and a bit too salty for my taste. The french toast and maple syrup did balance the saltiness a bit. A solid dish for someone in the mood for a heavy meal.

Piece of meat
The prime steak was very tender and cooked just right. The creaminess of the organic eggs worked well with everything on the plate. 

Overall, it was an enjoyable brunch and the mimosas never stopped flowing. The prices were good for the quality, portion and location. The restaurant is small and felt crammed when it was full, even with all the large windows. With so many brunch places in Los Angeles, Eva didn't have anything that really set itself a part from all the others. I definitely got the sense that it was a locals brunch spot.
