Brunch in Beverly Hills West LA and beyond...

I'm looking for a brunch place for my friend and I to go for a holiday meal. I'm looking for a nice place but not too expensive or scary BH scene. We both love seafood... she is a vegetarian who also eats fish. Any and all suggestions are welcome... even if out of the general area. Thanks!

      absolutely get the weekend brunch at cafe del rey in marina del rey.

      the food is great
      the price is excellent for what you get
      $22 for two courses, a glass of champagne, and their excellent basket of baked goods.
      for $28 you get three courses and the champagne and the baked goods.

            Hey forgot to tell everyone what we thought! We went to the Cafe at the Marina. It was a very nice atmosphere... modern decor, lovely view, great service. The food was delicious and beautiful. But frankly it was so rich that the 2 course menu was too much food for either of us to finish!

        How about the Restaurant at the Getty Center? A la carte brunch ($12-19), and the best view in the city.

          All excellent suggestions above.

          Also, French 75 in Century City has a nice brunch.

            Try the new restaurant at Shutters in Santa Monica called Coast. It's lovely, quiet, great view, lots of seafood and not too pricey...

              I'd recommend The Belmont on La Cienega and Melrose. The fun thing about this place is that on the weekends they have a bloody mary bar during brunch and lunch. i ordered a breakfast burrito which was really tasty...and most of the other entrees looked pretty good from what i saw. most of the entrees vary from $7-14 during brunch/lunch time.
