Weekend Brunch/Lunch Woodland Hills/Encino/Sherman Oaks
Looking for somewhere to meet friends, from out of town, for brunch/lunch this weekend in the Woodland Hills/Encino/Sherman Oaks area. I thought maybe Whispers. Any other ideas?
If Salads or brunchish dishes seem appropriate, Stanley's on Ventura at Matilija in Sherman Oaks is very nice, has a superb patio out back, weather-permitting, meaning it will be warmish, yet umbrellas do shade out the direct sunlight.
I'm not sure what you are looking for in terms of price and cuisine, but there are several options in Sherman Oaks -- Hugo's, La Frite, and Cafe Bizou are all good options. I also like Marmalade's brunch.
I think a couple of the Indian restaurants in Encino and Tarzana have champagne brunches. I know Taj Mahal in Encino is supposed to have a good-sized brunch buffet.
