I found it....I found it...The holy grail of brunch has been discovered!  I left this place twenty pounds heavier and speechless as I had a difficult time processing the past glorious two hours that I had just spent at this downtown LA restaurant.  

They offer three flavors of mimosas- orange, pomegranate and strawberry/guava.  The strawberry/guava was everyone's favorite and the waiter kept them flowing!  I seriously never saw the bottom of my glass.  

You are able to order two items at a time when you have a group of 4 people.  They serve it family style, so the whole table shares. This manner of eating definitely makes brunch more communal. Everything was delicious, but the turkey tostada and ceviche were my favorite items. The rest of the table voted the ceviche as their favorite menu item. I normally don't get dessert, but felt the need to try the churros.  Let's just say the extra calories were well worth it and they might have been the best churros I have had in my life.  Just the right crunch on the outside, moist on the inside and not too sweet.  Then dip those babies in the whip cream and bam!!!! Pure heaven!
