The Front Yard is the all-day restaurant inside the Garland Hotel that shouldn’t be written off as another sleepy lobby cafe. The Front Yard is a party pretty much any day of the week, with a healthy mix of studio workers getting drunk on their lunch hours, retirees getting drunk because they can, and hotel guests getting drunk while their kids play in the pool. And on top of all that, the food is good too. Weekend brunch is the most popular meal here, but cruising up their front patio and ordering the TFY burger and a martini is an ideal lunch in our books.
