Request for Restaurant Recommendations, Birthday Lunch this Sunday

So I'm turning 34 this weekend, and my family wants to go out to Sunday brunch. It need not be a real brunch, but we wish to eat between 9am and 11am, somewhere in Orange County.

Dim Sum would be reasonable, but most places in the OC are just OK for regular meals, not wow my socks off for a birthday dim sum. Also, Sam Woo in Irvine doesn't open until 11am, and we need to attend a baptism at 2pm so the earlier we can start the better.

Any brilliant ideas on where we should go? I would have it at Tsuruhashi if I could. Taps? Las Brisas? St. Regis - of course St. Regis but with 20 of us I don't want my family to foot the $1500 bill. Thanks in advance!

  1. Las Brisas is always a good choice, beautiful view. By the way, Happy Birthday.

      1. I like Taps. The brunch is great...really good deal too, especially if you like raw oysters freshly shucked and all you can eat!
