Hi, we're going to be in LA for Easter and would love a great place for brunch. Thanks.

    Los Angeles is huge. It would really help you by helping us out with where you'll be staying, what type of cuisine you enjoy, and, most importantly, whether you'll have a car.

      thanks,sorry, I'm new to chowhounds. We will have a car, and we don't car where we will need to drive. We haven't seen our son, (in college there) since Christmas, so we would love a beautiful location, and of course, the best food available.

        *sigh* yes, but WHICH college? Where in LA will you be?

        I still say Inn of The Seventh Ray for good food and a lovely setting.

        Not too far from UCLA, close to Pepperdine. 15 -20 Minuted from CSUN. Not sure how far it is from USC. half hour from Santa Monica City College, or LA City College, or Valley College...

        Please be more specific!

          USC. We're from Northern Cal and driving is not a big deal to us. Thanks! I've read about JAR. Any good?

      The best brunch I had was at Granita, which is now, sadly, gone.

      the easter brunch at Inn of the Seventh Ray in Malibu is nice, and in probably one of the lovliest brunch settings.

      The Universal Hilton is supposed to be a good brunch.

      Any retaraunt brunch, especially the higher end ones, would require a very early reservation. i"d plan on making one in the next week or two, if I were you.

        We're having easter brunch at the Getty. Its the same consistently good food, service and enviroment on holidays...

          If the college happens to be CSUN, you might want to swing by Calabasas for Saddle Peak Lodge. Sadly, they don't serve rabbit then, but they do have a large selection of other game meat like elk and venison.

            Suggest calling the Hotel Bel Air .

              Second Hotel Bel-Air.

              Campanile does a nice spread; I had great ricotta pancakes there last Easter.

              Luna Park does one as well.

              If you want to head toward the beach/Santa Monica, i Cugini and Whist both have nice brunches.

              On the Hollywood side, Mirabelle and Ortolan.

              Downtown, your best bet is Cafe Pinot.
