This past Saturday, Benjamin Bailly busted brunch out on the patio of Cliff's Edge, the Silver Lake restaurant the celebrated chef joined in January. The new offerings include European brunch staples like eggs Florentine and Benedict, French toast filled with Nutella, and raspberry crepes with vanilla marscapone. A selection of sandwiches includes smoked salmon, croque monsiuer with Black Forest ham, a B.L.A.T., and a burger with double-cheddar and onion fondue. Those seeking a heavier morning meal may find satisfaction in Bailly's two pasta preps, one a mushroom spaghetti with creme fraiche and egg, the other a carbonara bearing egg yolk, English peas, parm, and pancetta, chased by four choices for dessert. Check out the chef's full new brunch menu at Cliff's Edge, below.
