Luxlife Reviews Delphine, The Perfect Brunch Spot


Hollywood, CA- Located in the W Hollywod and directly across from The Pantages Theatre, Delphine is the perfect spot for pre-theater dining, breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, and dinner.  Boasting an elegant yet comfy interior, Delphine serves classic and modern interpretations of California Bistro Fare, serving everything from bistro-inspired entrées, sandwiches, an extensive raw bar, and Steak Frites.

Organic Kale Salad

On a particularly lovely Saturday afternoon, we settled in to one of the plushy appointed booths and unanimously decided that mimosas were in order.  Torn between the enticing selection of appetizers, we decided on the Crispy Calamari and the Organic Kale Salad.  While the calamari was...calamari, the salad knocked our socks off.  Served chilled, the kale was dressed in a delightful, creamy citrus dressing and garnished with goat milk feta, jalapeños, pita chips and mandarin oranges.  The tanginess was perfectly balanced by the bite of the jalapeños which were tempered by the cooling feta...the perfect marriage.  Additional starters that stood out were the Wild Pacific Prawn Cocktail, Roasted Candy Cane Beet and Endive Salad, and the Garlic Shrimp and Spicy Sausage.

Huevos Rancheros and Scrambled Eggs in Puff Pastry

Craving something not too heavy and in need of protein, we gleefully selected two wonderful egg dishes as entrées:  the amazingly satisfying Huevos Rancheros and the elegant Scrambled Eggs in Puff Pastry. The huevos rancheros of corn tortillas, fried eggs, black beans, chorizo, queso fresco, pico de gallo and creme fraiche was something that we would even order for dinner, as it successfully hit the spot.  The scrambled eggs with asparagus and wild mushrooms, though simply executed, were light and fluffy as was the flawless puff pastry.  If our appetites were heartier, we would have tried the crowd pleasing Delphine Cheeseburger which consists of aged cheddar, caramelized onions, sunny-side hen egg, rosemary bacon and is acommpanied by sea salt fries or organic field greens if you're feeling healthy.

Apple Crumble and Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Coupe

Rarely a brunch passes by that an order of Brioche French Toast isn't in order but fortunately we held out at the urging of our server for the amazing Apple Crumble and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Coupe.  Who doesn't love cinnamon and raw honey tinged tangy apples, ice cream and buttery-crumble goodness?  Better yet, who could pass up house made peanut butter ice cream, dark chocolate sherbet, and gooey, honey marshmallow with bitter chocolate sauce?

<span style="font-size: medium;">For seafood lovers, Delphine hosts Raw Bar Mondays from 5:00 to 10:30 pm which offers shrimp, East Coast oysters, clams, and New Zealand mussels for $1 and Jonah crab claw, West coast oysters, prawns and much more for $2.  Naturally, enjoy the bountiful sea offerings with a chilled sparkling rosé or pinot grigio for $5.  

Delphine's outdoor lounge, Station Hollywood, offers the perfect setting to enjoy pre or post theater drinks and appetizers with friends.  Station Hollywood has no cover charge and features nightly DJ's, a full bar menu, intimate lounge seating, and inviting fire pits.
