Sunny days are meant for HomeState, the immensely popular breakfast taco and all-things-Texas homage in Los Feliz. Now the restaurant is bringing those rays to foot-traffic heavy Figueroa in Highland Park, opening to the world on Monday morning.
HomeState is the brainchild of Briana Valdez, though this new location features work from a whole lot of other folks too. For starters there’s the Jacquelyn Hrobuchak-designed space, meant to replicate and enhance the vibe of the original location further west. Expect the same wooden booths, colorful paint scheme, and friendly service from the ordering counter up front, but with the added bonus of high ceilings and a charming 1,000 square foot patio tucked next to a neighboring building.
Former Republique GM Taylor Parsons is helping out too, adding his drinks knowledge to HomeState’s first booze menu. Instead of only offering Topo Chico, this location will be pushing out $10 cocktails like palomas and margaritas (offered frozen or iced), plus inexpensive local beer and Shiner Bock. A collection of straight $9 spirits can be found too, along with a $28 bucket of DIY mimosas for all to share. The opening drinks menu is posted below.
HomeState Highland Park officially opens on Monday, rocking the same daytime menu as ever before. That means chorizo and egg tacos, shredded brisket sandwiches, lots of queso, and of course that famous Frito pie. Expect immediate all-day hours from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
