Kwini Reed, Poppy + Rose serves seasonal, elevated country kitchen styled comfort food in a relaxed, floral-themed ambiance.
All of the dishes from the restaurant’s extensive menu are made from scratch, with original recipe’s crafted in Reed’s kitchen. Favorites off of the Poppy + Rose menu include Buttermilk Chicken + Waffles, the Fried Chicken Sandwich, Biscuits and Gravy and a Pulled Pork Hash Platter. Along with brunch staples are the restaurant’s equally loved, clever cocktails, which are as simple as mimosas to as quirky as the Fried Chicken Mary – Chef Michael’s take on a Bloody Mary with house Bloody Mary mix, topped with wine-based vodka and a giant fried-chicken piece.
In addition to the restaurant’s focus of using quality, seasonal ingredients and bringing hearty brunch favorites to Downtown LA, Poppy + Rose frequently gives back to the community, supporting hospitals, children’s organizations, social justice causes and more through financial assistance and meal donations.
In the near future, the restaurant plans to expand their initiatives to include a supper menu, collaborations with other Black-owned businesses, and more.
