after months of saying i would go and try square one, after months of margaux begging to go, after months of neil saying how amazing it was...i finally went. with margaux. and neil. we set out on a clear saturday, early afternoon. on the way, we passed the scientology center which frightened me and sent chills up and down my spine. the "workers" were all dressed in blue, some repairing the street, others walking like robots along the sidewalk. i had never seen the center before, nor had i ever really seen a scientologist up close. if any of you who are this reading are scientologists, i don't mean to offend. it's just that it's all a bit creepy to me. ha. i guess that's kinda offensive. in any case, let's get back to square one.
square one, for those who don't know, is a place known for sensational breakfast food. virtually anyone in the know lists square one as one of LA's best breakfast spots. when we got there, i pretty much knew what i was going to order. it's no secret that i pretty much order french toast wherever i go for breakfast. fyi, the french toast at king's road is on the top of my list...until, that is, i tried the french toast at square one. perfectly browned bread, soft on the inside, topped with vanilla whipped cream, pineapple, banana and kiwi. you can also get it with their bourbon-pecan topping or their banana-citrus caramel. i opted for the cold fruit topping and was thorourghly impressed. margaux ordered the breakfast sandwich with sausage, egg, frisee and tomato. neil had the chorizo, gruyere cheese, tomato, onions, tortilla, roasted bell peppers and salsa roja baked egg dish. wow. i think all of us enjoyed our dishes and i would without hesitation recommend square one to any and everyone.
...square one was followed by a quick jaunt to larchmont village, followed by a spontaneous decision to see letters from iwo jima at the arclight, followed by a nice dinner at magnolia. just another day in our lovely city.
