Your Yummy New Brunch Spot For Down-Home Food (And Tunes!)

We've jumped through a lot of hoops to grub on a decent brunch: We've waited hours in line at BLD, and have practically sat on our neighbors' laps at Salt's Cure. (We were starving and maybe just a little H.O. — can you blame us?).
Well, starting this Sunday, we'll be cruising the 10 East (opposite direction of the beach, thank the traffic gods!) for an easy-breezy blues-and-bbq brunch at the ION Rooftop Bar and Lounge at the JW Marriott. We're always suckers for Southern cooking, but throw in some live tunes and outdoor dining, and we're in full-on Sunday fun-day mode!
If you have plans to hightail it out of town this holiday weekend, don't fret! The bluesy brunch will be offered every Sunday through Labor Day. And, let's face it, any kind of food tastes better when you throw in fresh air as an ingredient!
When: Every Sunday, starting May 27, noon to 4 p.m.
Where: ION Rooftop Bar and Lounge at the JW Marriott, 900 West Olympic Boulevard (between Georgia and Francisco streets); 213-765-8600.
