which hotel has the best brunch buffet?
bev hills four season, ritz pasadena, bel-air,etc..? thanks
The only one I've been to here in LA is the Ritz at the Marina. The food was very good, and the setting was lovely. It was very expensive, but I don't remember how much because someone else paid.
Bel Air's isn't a buffet, neither is Peninsula.
I personally have a germ thing about buffets, just the thought of other people breathing on my food (oy).
Four Seasons - Great waffle set up and fixings (ice cream, butter, berries). Sushi rolls, 2-3 kinds of fish (they had sword fish a couple months ago), kids section (chicken tenders and mashed potatoes, fries), omelettes.
Ritz Carlton MDR - Good waffle set up (the berries aren't as nice), great assortment of breads and pastries, bottomless champagne, great coffee, caviar.
St. Regis Monarch Bch -- Not in LA, but my favorite is St. Regis in Monarch Bch. Really clean. They have pancakes, nice out door seating.
Not a hotel, but I was impressed with the brunch buffet at Donald Trump's National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes. Champagne, caviar, crab legs, sushi, waffle and omelette station, etc. Good quality food, stunning ocean view, but very expensive.
I haven't been to The Four Seasons but I'll throw in another vote for The Ritz MDR. I think it's like $75/person. Go very hungry, as there is a TON of food and it's all really good.
