So here's what we think...

The Wallace had been on my never-ending restaurant for quite some time now. A Californian keeper by our standards, The Wallace brings local ingredients and fresh fare to the table in the burgeoning downtown Culver food scene. The space is bright and expansive, with a gallery wall in the dining room so well put together that I photographed it for my own decor inspiration. Although we visited for weekend brunch, they are open for lunch and dinner daily with a small-plate/sharing style menu great for group dining. The menu is full of gluten-free options, many dishes not needing substitutions. If your like me and always love a little bread with your eggs, don’t worry, they’ve got you covered…

We went reverse with our meal and started with a sweet item to get the tastebuds going. The honey and vanilla yogurt with granola and fruit was a nice start to the meal. The granola is mostly composed of nuts and dried fruit, the yogurt creamy and smooth, and the berries fresh. Yes! The granola is gluten-free!

As for the savory items, we just went for it. The gluten-free chilaquiles were nothing but filling and flavorful. Chicken and eggs were scrambled into a tower of corn tortilla chips doused in a red sauce, queso freco and a crema. Naturally, we complemented with another heavy hitter: steak and eggs. This hearty protein packed plate is served with avocado, potatoes, toast and a homemade jam. The gluten-free sub for toast is a soft baguette slice of sorts, seemingly hard to find with gluten subs, and the seasonal jam was a homemade blueberry that was delicious! Thankfully we were both very hungry and shockingly able to finish. Both.

I’d be remiss to leave out a brunch favorite: mimosas. Although we didn’t partake in the bottomless mimosas deal, we will be back for these guys. The Wallace sure did please and we highly recommend. There is so much more that chef Joel Miller has to offer along with brunch. The dinner menu is just as mouth watering with so many different vegetable and protein options, it would be hard to not find something for everyone. We can’t wait to pay them another visit!
