Summer’s Bounty at 888 Hilgard

We’re running on all cylinders this summer and post-pandemic life is proving to be one of abundance and happiness. We’re enjoying the warm summer sunshine out and about in our neighborhood! Check out these local hotspots we’re loving this month:

Thursdays are for local farmers markets! Our community is flowing with fresh produce and grocery options. Every Thursday, the Westwood Village Farmers Market and the Century City Farmers Market are flurries of fresh groceries, friends and community. Looking for a weekend option? We recommend the West LA Farmers Market on Sundays! You can find all the fresh ingredients for that summer cocktail or salad you’ve been meaning to try out.

Speaking of cocktails! Using the locally made honey you purchased at one of the farmers markets, we recommend trying out a Honey Paloma. The tequila-based cocktail uses natural honey as it’s sweetener and is perfectly refreshing for a libation by the pool. If honey isn’t your favorite, we recommend blending some fresh strawberries with your favorite rosé and whipping up a Frosé cocktail. A summer sipper’s dream in a cocktail glass, with a sliced strawberry garnish.

What’s on the summer salad menu in 2021? Our first favorite is a Watermelon Feta Salad. Slice fresh watermelon, cucumbers and feta and toss with a simple dressing. Your tastebuds will thank you. If you need a little protein in your salad, we recommend the Charred Shrimp and Avocado Salad. You’ll taste the tropics with this pineapple garnished dish mixed with cucumber and watercress, keeping things refreshing and crunchy.

From delicious neighborhood eats to homemade bites and sipes, 888 Hilgard is a summer destination or staycation dream! Call 866.248.6667 to inquire and learn more!
