Looking for great brunch spot in LA to take a Manhattanite
Have you considered the brunch buffet at Duke's in Malibu? They're supposed to have great views, which is a plus for out-of-towners.
jar has a great brunch--been twice, awesome both times.
joe's on abbot kinney is also very good for sat or sun brunch.
jar was mellow
joe's was mellow on sat and hopping on sun
I enjoy the brunch at the Odyssey restaurant in Granada Hills. The food is ok and the views of the Valley are great.
I've only been Jar once and thought it was pretty awful...seriously, how can you make pork taste bland (it's in their version of eggs benedict)? The service was atrocious too.
