Sunday Brunch in SF?

I have some friends coming into town this weekend and trying to plan a Sunday brunch for 8-10 people. Any suggestions?

    1. there are lot's of places and this is a popular question and most places can accommodate-
      Maverick takes a reservation, there is a large table in front.
      Universal Cafe is great
      Foreign Cinema
      2223 Restaurant
      Bar Tartine

      Here is a post-

        A few more brunch spots that I have been to (and enjoyed) that accomodate large parties:

        The Last Supper Club (3 tables that can fit up to 10 people)
        Luna Park

          We're going to Maverick with a big group on Sunday. Any specific standout dishes? I'm leaning towards the soft shelled crab Po'boy.

            I loved the fennel sausage with grits, the grits are so creamy.. get some donutholes!

        2. I second the Foreign Cinema recommendation. They offer a fabulous brunch, and if the weather's nice, great outdoor seating. If you're more interested in a view than food, I'd also suggest Beach Chalet. It's a great location. The food is okay (brunch is definitely better than dinners).

            Third Foreign Cinema.
            2223 is also good, though can be real noisy.
            Consider Absinthe in Hayes Valley area.

          2. Lime in the Castro is a lot of bottomless mimosas!

              Those "mimosas" are a perfect example of why choosing quantity over quality is a bad idea.

              At Lime, they make the juice & sparkling by the pitcher and let it sit around on the bar so by the time the waiter brings it to your table and refills your glass is almost entirely flat. And there's very high juice to sparkling ratio, the one time I ordered the bottomless mimosa, I had six and didn't "feel" them at all whereas normally, I'd notice the alcohol on my 2nd mimosa.

                I don't know what it is but I don't like going to brunch in a place where I may have been cocktaiiling the night before, Lime is more of a bar lounge than I place would go to for brunch, the food is not that good copared to many of the other choices.

                I forgot to mention Greens, very lovely spot and parking.

            2. Why not give them a unique San Francisco experience at Harry Denton's Starlight Room? They do a drag show with brunch, and I hear the food is good.

              Dim Sum at Yank Sing always impresses the out of towners, and it's good - but pricey.
