It’s pedigreed comfort food: hot pastrami with swiss and spicy brown mustard on Grand Central Bakery bread, a cinnamon-swirl French toast, even an upmarket Egg McMuffin crafted with feisty housemade sausage. Brunch, served every day, is what Eats is best known for—and that reputation extends way beyond the arc of the West Seattle Bridge, so come prepared to wait. They also do dinners, which include such pleasers as pan-roasted farmhouse chicken and grilled skirt steak with crispy garlic mashed potatoes. Bubbe's chicken soup, anchored with a plump matzo ball, is hands-down the richest and most authentic this side of Brooklyn. Eating this kind of Grandma's-been-cooking-all-day food in a shiny Westwood mall space decorated to the stone-and-wainscoted specs of a Martha Stewart photo shoot may feel all wrong at first. Have a bite of coffee cake; you'll get over it.
