3179 Los Feliz Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90039
The Morrison is across the street from Giamela's, an ok pizza place with terrible service the last time I went. It's a huge gastropub with an L-shaped bar on the left and booths along the back wall. There is a long community table that is as high as a bar, right in the middle of the room when you walk in.
It's a dark place with black paint normally. The day I went they had Halloween decorations up, which made it even darker.
The veggie slider was just ok. The patty is made with corn, beans, rice, cilantro, carrots, panko, oatmeal. A good size and filling. But, nothing great. The veggie burger is regularly $13. I would not have been happy paying $13 for full veggie burger. They have a portobello mushroom burger, also for $13, on their regular menu. If I come back, I may give that a try!
This was a huge dish, well worth the $6 happy hour price. I didn't taste any of the Tapatio or jalapenos. But, this was a great mac n cheese. A very creamy cheese sauce, while a bit underseasoned, it was very good. The mac n cheese was cooked perfectly. I like spicy food but didn't taste any spice in this mac and cheese. But, I really liked this mac and cheese.
Service was below average but friendly. While everybody from the hostess to the server was nice, it was too slow. I was seated quickly by the hostess. A couple minutes later a host took my drink order. Why they have 2-3 host/hostess is beyond me! But, they were fine. Then I wait, then wait, then wait, and wait some more. Finally I see a third hostess and ask who is my server. She goes gets the server and I place my order. He comes back with my sliders and refills my drink. A runner came by with the mac n cheese a few minutes later. The server comes back once again to ask how everything was. Then I ask for my check. I must have waited another 5 minutes for the check. Most of the tables were filled in the restaurant, but there were plenty of other servers. I don't know why the service was so slow. My entire time there would have been about 20 minutes less, if service wasn't so slow.
The mac n cheese was the highlight for me. A great example of mac n cheese. But, service was slow and the burgers, which they are known for, was just ok. It maybe awhile before I go back!
