Patio restaurant in L.A. or S.F. Valley for June Shower

KeriK Mar 19, 2009 12:17 AM

Looking for a mid-priced restaurant with a pretty patio or pvt. rm. in Los Angeles or The Valley with a traditional Sunday brunch menu that can accommodate 40 women for a baby shower. Any suggestions?

    Where did you end up doing the event? I am looking for something similar for a bridal shower. How much?

      In the SF Valley I would recommend Stanley's, Zach's or Rive Gauche.

        I don't know if the Firefly in the Valley has a brunch...but it is one of the most beautiful patios in all of LA. Why not call and ask if they can do a brunch for 40+ women to accomodate you? In these economic times they might do something special for you. The old Cava, in the La Terza/Minetsraio (sp?) space did this for my bridal shower.

          Cliff's Edge in Silverlake would be nice.

            That was my first thought too. Cliff's Edge has a large, beautiful patio. Perfect for a shower. Though you may want to check the prices (not on the website) to see if they meet your definition of mid-priced. www.cliffsedgecafe.com

            Edendale Grill, on the other side of Silverlake, would be another good option too. www.edendalegrill.com

            Or in Venice, Rose Cafe might work as well. www.rosecafe.com

              Actually, I just remembered that I went to a very nice event at the Rose Cafe patio, although it was evening and the restaurant was closed to the public. This might be a good reasonably priced option.

            i'd check with Chez Mimi for their patio -- pretty and perfect for June.

            i was also going to suggest Lilly's as well.

              I just mentioned this place in an earlier post with a similar question. I really like Ca del Sol in the valley, on Lankershim. They have a very pretty private patio in the back, and the food is very good. I've been to a couple of private parties there....one was a brunch....and both events were lovely.

                  Lilly's was actually my first thought, although I wasn't sure if they could accommodate 40.

                    i had about 20 ladies and that was at one long table so i'm pretty certain they can accomodate 40.

                  I have seen baby showers at 26 Beach Restaurant, I have no idea what they charge. Congratulations! www.26beach.com
