Anisette Brasserie - Great Burger!

Mimosas!!! Mimosas!! That was my friend this Sunday.

So, we came to Anisette to fulfill her craving. $10 mimosas may not be cheap, but hey, it did the trick. I indulged in a couple of mimosas myself. Got myself a nice lil buzz.

We didn't have reservations, and the wait was 30 minutes. The hostess said we could sit at the bar since it had a full menu. Not a bad idea actually. I think sitting at the bar gets you better service.

Plus, I got a nice view of their insanely stocked liquor wall.

I had the Brasserie Burger with fries which was highly recommended by the waitress. And boy was she right! This was easily one of the best burgers I've had in a long time! The meat was tender, juicy and flavorful. Bun was lightly toasted and dusted with some butter. Topped off with bacon, lettuce, chopped onions and tomatoes, the Brasserie Burger is definitely a must get. In fact, I noticed the 4 people next to us all got the burger.

My friend had some pate with bread dish which she liked, but didn't love. Well, it looked kinda funny, and I forgot to take a pic. Oops.

Kiddo had a croissant with chocolate milk. That croissant looked divine, buttery and flakey. I almost stole a piece, but she ate it all.

Service was good after the ladies too over. The guy who gave us drinks seemed a bit confused, but it's cool. I forgave that after he made us strong mimosas. Or maybe I forgot.

Our brunch was $87.. so definitely not cheap. But, I'm down for paying for good food. Great brunch spot!

I'm a big fan of this place. I love their waffles with Nutella, and the croissants which they bake throughout the mornings. They also have excellent Bloody Marys--probably the best I've had in LA. Glad you enjoyed your burger =). Anisette is a must try for everyone out there!
