Mirabelle on Sunset yet, you're in for a surprise. The 40-year-old restaurant was definitely in need of an update, and now it has one, just with more teddy bears in glass boxes, red horse head sculptures and antlers. Saying it's over-the-top is an understatement. Chef Michael Bryant, who was great at Palihouse, is behind the stoves cooking a seafood-heavy menu - things like charcuterie (glazed tuna ham; salmon pastrami; smoked trout pate), pan-seared branzino, and halibut-stuffed ravioli. There are meaty items, too, including a full pound of slow-braised pork ribs.
While the restaurant has been serving dinner and weekend brunch for over a month now, it's bringing back daily happy hour this week. Starting tomorrow, July 4, Bryant will add new daily BBQ specials to the menu - they'll change regularly based on what he finds at the markets - all priced at $8, and cocktails, beer and wine will be discounted. Happy hour happens every day from 5 to 7 PM.
