What is DISH?


Dish is a new kind of restaurant that offers the quality and creativity of higher priced restaurants, with the value and comfort of a neighborhood coffee shop. We focus on classic American food...the kind of recipes you might find in an old Sunset magazine or your grandmother’s cookbooks.

Selected by America Online as
"Best Breakfast in L.A." 2004 & 2006, nominated 2004-2008

People who love a great breakfast restaurant will appreciate the things we do at DISH, like roasting bone-in hams every morning and offering applewood-smoked bacon and hand-crafted sausages. Our apple oatcakes are made with fresh diced green apples, and our cornmeal jonnycakes are made with real corn.

"...It’s like an old pair of jeans, it’s incredibly comfortable, the prices are low, the service is good and the food is just perfect."
~Merril Shindler, LA Times

We serve simple family-style food, yet we concentrate on quality. So something as simple as a BLT sandwich can be a pleasant surprise when it’s made with applewood-smoked bacon, carefully toasted whole wheat bread and French fries cut from fresh Kennebec potatoes. Our lunch menu offers a great selection of American classics, with over ten luncheon salads, gourmet sandwiches, awesome burgers, fresh seafood, pastas, chicken and steak. And most entrees are under $10.00, so we offer value along with creativity and variety.

"...a triumph of down-home Americana" ~Zagat Survery

The dinner menu features home-style traditional American favorites such as roasted ham with macaroni and greens, pork chops with apple chutney, and slow braised brisket of beef with bourbon-barbeque sauce.

A full bar and wine list is available, along with an excellent choice of beers and wines by the glass. (Why shouldn’t you be able to get a good glass of wine in a casual restaurant?) There are also fresh squeezed juices and boutique sodas.

Of course there is a great kid’s menu with lots of creative, healthy choices.

And to top it all off, we make all our pastries from scratch; All-American favorites such as banana cream pie, strawberry-rhubarb pie, and deep dish apple pie.
