The good people of Elysian brought J. Brix and Smog City together nearly a year ago and Thursday we honor the “love child” of this collaboration, Brix Layer.
At this event only, you’ll have an opportunity to taste the Riesling Wine that inspired Brix Layer and is made with the same grapes, alongside Brix Layer and a selection of other Smog City and J Brix offerings.

This is a unique L.A. restaurant, tucked away in Frogtown and serving inspired and creative dishes and keep Porter and Laurie coming back!
