California comfort food has found its home at Grub. This charming little 1920's converted duplex makes diners feel right at home. The cozy patio is perfect for an intimate dinner. Located in the
middle of Hollywood amidst the post production houses sits an art-filled gem. Chefs Betty Fraser and Denise De Carlo combine a kitschy style into both the decor and the food at Grub. Start off with one of the Grub libations. We like the Lemon Basil Champagne
Coacktail ($5.50) and the Red Neck Sangria ($4.50). Sangria is fruity and refreshing with red wine, cranberry, orange, and apple juice plus a splash of Grub's house made ginger syrup and fresh fruit. Enjoy a bottle of Stella Artois ($4.50), Blue Moon ($4.50),
or Stone Pale Ale ($5.50) on the patio. Red and white wine are also offered ($4.95-$10) by the glass or bottle. ($19-$33). Start your dinner with some ice cold veggie, pretzels, and ranch dip. For an appetizer try the famous Mt. Olympus Six Layer Dip
($9.25). Spicy lemon hummus is topped with kalamanta olives, marinated artichokes, feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, and fresh basil. Scoop it up with warm flatbread for a tasty treat. For hard-core bacon lovers (like me), order the "Crack" Bacon Quesadilla
With Apples ($9.25). Not sure what "Crack" bacon is? It's sweet, salty, peppery, savory, and addicting all at the same time. The quesadilla (Granny Smith Apples, cheddar cheese, "crack" Bacon, caramelized onions, pear and apple butter are all melted between
two spinach tortillas). Can you say heaven? Vegetarians can order without the bacon, but it's not quite as much fun! The Mac & Cheese ($12.25) is well worth the calories. Cheesy, breadcumb-crusted, bubbly, and hot; this is definitely home-cooking
at its best. We love the After School Special ($12.25), cheddar and swiss grilled on sourdough with dill butter. Enjoy with Creamy Dreamy Tomato Soup. My favorite sandwich is the B~L~T ($11.99). "Crack" bacon, fresh tomatoes, and romaine lettuce are sandwiched
on a toasted roll with garlic mayo. Betty's Potato Chip Chicken ($15.99) is a delicious, moist chicken breast marinated in Ranch dressing and buttermilk, rolled in potato chips, then baked. This is one great piece of chicken served with mashed potatoes and
sauteed spinach. If you still have room for dessert, order the Half Ass Ice Cream Sandwich ($7.25). Giant chocolate chip cookies are stuffed with Neopolitan ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce. We also adore the Fosse cookies ($1.25 each) with chocolate
chips and potato chips! Service is very friendly and owners are super nice! Grub 911 Seward Street, Hollywood (323) 461-FOOD.
