Fundamental LA begins brunch service this Saturday morning, running from 11:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. every weekend thereafter. Favored for a rotating selection of standout sandwiches at lunch, an adherence to baking and curing its own, and an affordable, gutsy dinner menu, the small, stripped-down Westwood cafe will revel in morning dishes not necessarily served between slices, like creme fraiche scrambled eggs with chevre, king trumpet 'shrooms, and bitter greens, sous-vide eggs with house-smoked bacon and grits, and French toast made with spiced apples and the spot's own brioche. Meanwhile, the mud is another sustainable Yay Area export, this time from San Fran's Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters, served via French press. And just in case you want to keep it safe, there will be some sandwiches, too. Check out the new brunch selection below.
