This year, I decided I should flip the script on that same ol’ Valentine’s Day story. Kind of Love is a prix fixe brunch inspired by the different kinds of love defined by the Ancient Greeks. Each dish is an edible interpretation of a different “kind of love.” The event is also a fundraiser for the YWCA of Greater Los Angeles with 100% of the proceeds going to the organization. Come as you are! Single, taken, "it's complicated": All are welcome.
