"Chocolate Brunch" at Luna Park

I was reading Gayot and came across this intriguing blurb:
Luna Park is serving "Chocolate Brunch" every Sunday, featuring decadent dishes such as chocolate chip pancakes with chocolate maple syrup, chilequiles with mole, and chocolate strawberry crêpes with chocolate sauce. Specialty drinks include chocolate mimosas and dark chocolate mojitos. Luna Park's Chocolate Brunch is offered Sundays from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Luna Park, 672 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036, 323-934-2110.

Has anyone been to this? Thoughts?

The chocolate-centric menu is available online:

  1. I went on Easter Sunday, the first day they featured the menu.

    The French Toast, I thought, was very good, although oddly, it was accompanied by a salad. I was told the chocolate chip pancakes were really good too. The Chiliquiles, though, weren't what I expect in that dish. It seemed way too heavy on chips and beans at the expense of other ingredients, and basically seemed like a plate of chips.

    I was told the chocolate mimosas were "weird".

    Anyway, it was a cute schtick, but unless I lived in the neighborhood, I probably wouldn't go back.
