There's nothing better than going to a gastropub and indulging in tapas, especially when you have friends or family in town. It's the perfect way to show them a true taste of LA.

We jokingly refer to the Running Goose as "Hollywood's intermezzo" because when you're on our patio, either next to the fire pit or overlooking the garden, it's easy to be refreshed from the hustle, bustle, and noise of Hollywood Boulevard. Our dream is to serve you cuisine that genuinely reflects Los Angeles. We start with a base note of Central American influence then feather in culinary stylings from across the globe. All of these cultural influences work together to offer you something truly beautiful.

Happy hour is every day from 12 pm to 6 pm, house beer is $5, IPA is $6, Sangria is $6, pitchers are $24, and house red or white wine is $7. So make sure you come during happy hour to get a few drinks in.They have an excellent Running Goose House Pilsner that is perfect for summertime, or the Grapefruit IPA.In terms of wine, I love their Riesling or Rose, and if you're feeling red try their cab or Syrah, both are bold and flavorful.

If you come here for brunch, you're going to be very much so happy because they have incredible options for you to start with like Arugula Tostada with avocado, sweet onion, zapaca crema, arugula, queso seco, or Smoked Potato - dill aioli, charred onion, sesame, herbs, the Gambas are mouthwatering and I always order two - shrimp, cherry tomato, chili de arbol, garlic oil, toasted sourdough, and you can add tofu, chicken, shrimp, salmon or a filet to anything you order for a slight upcharge.For mains, try their Eggs Diablo - cherry tomato, cactus relish, cilantro, sourdough, fried eggs, or their Chilaquiles - short rib, crema, queso, sunny side up egg, radish, cilantro (favorite). We always gravitate towards their Benedict, it's always tasty with chipotle hollandaise, roasted ham, arugula, cherry tomato, on an English muffin.Dinner here is spectacular.

We believe that a meal is most enjoyed when it is shared. One and a half plates per person will usually ensure that your entire party is well fed. -the goose
Start off with Lamp Chops made with tamarind, lime, sesame, purple basil, and the Baked brie with apricot compote, roasted pepitas, roasted garlic, sage, toast. The Salt Cod Churros are great, made with maseca, saffron aioli, lemon, nori and the Gambas are available and impeccable.
They also have a few salad options, Summer Tomato - heirloom, lemon, watercress, fava beans, red onions, pomegranate vinaigrette, or the Frisee with arugula, shaved asparagus, grilled peach, Roquefort, champagne vinaigrette, the Kale is a great one too, made with carrots, radish, cherry tomato, almonds, mint, cayenne balsamic dressing, queso fresco.
For entrees, try their Masa Gnocchi - kale, mushroom, garlic, brown butter, lemon, ricotta, or the Vegan Vindaloo made with tofu “crema”, trio beans, roasted corn, cauliflower, english peas, tumeric and garam masala pesto, grilled bread.
I love their Filet Steak, it's coffee-rubbed, has sweet potato puree, roasted broccoli, cabbage, apple, arugula, chipotle. And their salmon, which is pan-roasted, spaghetti squash, charred tomato, sumac, saffron crema, lime, garden herb.
Don't leave without having some dessert, their Coconut White Chocolate Bread Pudding - butter flakes, sesame seeds, salted caramel, ice cream is amazing, so is their Horchata Creme Brulee with blueberry, almonds, red rice krispies.
