LA Weekly's Description

A few years ago, Cora's was still a crusty, hash-brown-intensive beach café. Bruce Marder, owner of the pricey Italian restaurant Capo next door, transformed the place into a lunch counter out of a GQ shoot: a patio shaded with crimson bougainvillea, a burbling Tuscan fountain, the distant crashing of the surf - sometimes you want a chef's salad, and sometimes you want an insalata ­caprese made with farmers-market tomatoes and ­oozingly creamy burrata cheese; sometimes you need ham 'n' eggs the morning after, and sometimes delicate petals of San Daniele prosciutto. Cora's hamburgers are magnificent, drippy things made of coarsely chopped, beyond-prime Wagyu cow, and for dessert, there is occasionally an intense homemade burnt-caramel ice cream bitter enough to make a 10-year-old child weep.

    Service, tho perfectly nice, was absolutely terrible. My client was completely done eating by the time our meals arrived. We didn't see any regret for the screw up reflected on our bill. T
