Cliff’s Edge is a wildly popular restaurant in Silver Lake aka Hipster Central aka Straps & Fanny Packs town. It’s a little romantic restaurant for those looking to impress someone like their side chick.
Cliff’s Edge does lunch and dinner in a hidden restaurant off of Sunset Blvd. The restaurant has an interesting layout in that the bar inside and the dining room is actually a patio or a backyard. It provides a very romantic setting at night for those special occasions like bar mitzvah and quinceaneras.
The waitress was great and attentive. She was full of suggestions. Luckily for us the place was empty on a Sunday cause everyone was hungover from Saturday, so we got her full attention. The menu changes more often than Donald Trump flips on issues.
Now, the food.
- Fruit Crepes (Brunch Menu) – The crepes had a nice fluffy texture to it and the fruits made it sweet. The healthy option for folks who like to watch what they eat. The type of people who ruin every meal by saying stuff like “You know how much calories that thing has?” or “You shouldn’t that. It’s bad for you.” Yes, those annoying people.
- Pork Belly (Dinner Menu) – The braised pork belly cooked to the perfect tenderness and served with a bunch of other crap to make it look pretty. We’ll call the other crap SnapChat filters. The pork belly had a nice sweet glaze to it. I don’t know about the Snapchat filters cause I didn’t use them.
- Kobe Burger (Brunch Menu) – The Kobe Burger was a decent size but it lacked any real flavors cause it was cooked well done. It wasn’t too bad but the juiciness was mainly lacking cause it wasn’t medium rare. It got me into one of those situations where you ask them to take it back and look like a total douche or eat it then write a bad review on Yelp. It’s like choosing which parent you want to live with in a divorce.
- Lobster (Dinner Menu) – The Lobster was plump and laid in a bed of colorful vegetables that I never touch. I’m at a point in my life where I want to tell restaurants to hold off on the vegetables and cook only the good stuff. It didn’t taste bad but it takes up space that could have stored more lobster.
Overall, Cliff’s Edge is a good restaurant for brunch or dinner. It’s a solid restaurant with a changing menu and reminds me San Francisco’s Nopa. However, I think Cliff’s Edge outdoes Nopa when it comes to being in a Hipster Neighborhood.[adinserter name=”Block 1″]
