Looking for a great place for Easter Brunch this year - buffet preferred
In years past, we have been to Napa Valley Grille, the Viceroy and XIV - all good - especially XIV! Looking for something new anywhere from Santa Monica to Pasadena. The Valley is ok, too. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
The Rundown just sent out a list of their Easter brunch recommendations: Livello at L'Ermitage, One Pico at Shutters, Ford's Filling Station, Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel Air, Fig & Olive and Raphael in Studio City. They all sound like solid choices to me, but I have never eaten brunch at any of them.
I do like Zengo at the Santa Monica Place. Not a buffet but a BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH
$35 per guest includes Unlimited Small Plates and Free-Flowing Cocktails. Latin Asian cusine. I love their duck hash. Nice 3rd floor patio overlooking the 3rd Street Promenade.
Also wonderful buffet brunch at Scarpetta Beverly Hills. On the expensive side but I do think it's the best brunch in town, Crab legs, oysters, shrimp, cheese from the Beverly Hills Cheese store, pasta, PANCAKES, WAFFLES & FRENCH TOAST, carving table and more.

We have been very happy with the Easter buffet at Loews Beach Hotel in Santa Monica in the past. This year it's $74 pp for adults. I figure that the Four Season's on Doheny in Beverly Hills will have a great one (as it ought to be at $95 pp for adults). We've been to the Universal Hilton at their Cafe Sierra in the past and it's fine too. Don't know what their price is this year.

Caveat: I have not been here for brunch, but I've been drooling over the menu since I first read. It's brunch at the SLS hotel in Beverly Hills. Here's a link to a review:
I've been to brunch at The Smoke House in Burbank, and while I think it is good, I would not classify it as spectacular. I do think you get what you pay for.
