upscale dining in the south bay?
i want to take my mother and family to lunch tomorrow, sunday, for her birthday. she lives in palos verdes and doesnt want to travel to far. manhatten beach and long beach are ok though.
can anyone recommend a really nice high quality place to take here?
thanks in advance.
UPDATE: sorry, I just noticed on their calendar that tomorrow, March 16, their Cafe Pacific (where they have brunch) is closed.
This may be too much, but it's super-upscale: the expensive-as-heck Sunday brunch buffet at the fancy restaurant on Donald Trump's golf course in PV, Trump National Golf Club.
Okay, I just went to their website and I didn't see a mention of the buffet, but I did see a lunch menu; here's a link:
also on the website:
Reservations are recommended.

It's expensive but the food is above-average (not smashingly good for what they charge), but the view is unbelievably breathtaking and totally worth it.
The decor is not the nicest (think retrofitted coffee shop) but the food at Chez Melange for brunch/lunch is pretty good. Down in Long Beach, there is Lasher's.
