Highland Park is launching its "homeroom" brunch menu, served every weekend from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting this March 5. The restaurant will expands its their hours of operation, opening at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, as well.
The 5,000-square-foot old-school cafeteria-inspired restaurant is designed and built by Spacecraft Design Group, integrating an edgy Highland Park vibe and a warm-neutral color palette with green, brown, and beige earthy tones. The overall concept is inspired in a non-traditional library and two of the walls of the main room covered in library-like shelves full of food items. The woodwork dominates the ample space, providing a warmer feel, and the furniture is made out of a deep-brown wood mixed with green leather. The outdoor patio backyard focuses in two blooming olive trees as well as a cozy fire-less fireplace made with brick and sand color with green accents, which will be decorated with candles and plants.
The recently opened Recess Eatery in Northeast Los Angeles caters to young families who live in the area with a very kid-friendly environment, adapting to the neighborhood. The family-owned business was looking to be a part of the enterprise zone, encouraging other new businesses to grow.
