911!!!!! Need gorgeous place for lunch tomorrow at noon x from CAA

We have major business folks in town for an inpromtu lunch tomorrow at noon. Price no object. Please advise

  1. Bazaar brunch - go all out with drinks etc. Brunch is ending Feb 13 so this would be perfect.

    1. don't know what "x from CAA" means...across from CAA? ten minutes from CAA? near CAA?

      anyway, Sunday is going to be VERY tough. Craft, Spago and Cut were my first thoughts, but none of them are open for lunch on Sundays (Cut isn't even open for dinner).

      maybe try The Bazaar or The BLVD?

            monku, i knew what CAA meant, i was just puzzled by the "x" part :)

              okay, Bazaar was a fantastic option....but they can not set all the folk at one table...terminally unexceptable with this group (shoot me!) Any other suggestions for an upscale groovy spot near CAA (creative Artist Agency) could be closer to the beach SM, or Venice...tried Lobster-No! I'm losing the ability to see....anybody, anyone, Wilson???
              Cool Brunch spot in BH price no option.

          2. bel aire hotel -- they will accommodate - and its going to be sunny and mild -- so outside will be lovely

              I'm assuming you're referring to the Luxe as the Hotel Bel Air is currently closed for remodeling.

                Tavern would be perfect and they have a great Sunday brunch. Very comfortable ambiance.
                See the brunch menu at:

                  Second Belvedere at the Peninsula. Four Seasons Beverly Hills is undergoing remodeling, per rumors.

                  Other choices: Parq at the Montage Beverly Hills, OR The restaurant at Raffles L'Ermitage on Burton Way, OR going old school biz haunt : The Polo Lounge at Beverly Hills Hotel.

                  Just avoid The Ivy (madhouse on weekends). Cecconi's food is blah, but it's got decor.

                  Bazaar can be a scene - Sundays bring the tourist & food pilgrims from OC & beyond - It may be tough to talk business.

                2. Gejlina in venice maybe? They have a private table towards the back.
