Sunday Brunch in SM/BH with reservations?
I usually lurk on the boards, but I do love love Chow.
I need help. I'm trying to plan a brunch for about 8 people on Sunday for a friends birthday. We're doing yoga in the morning in Santa Monica, then spa stuff in Beverly Hills, so I need somewhere that accommodate the following.
1) Less than $25 a head for food
2) takes reservations
3) slightly green/hippie vibe, or at the very least casual.
A couple of weeks ago I had Sunday brunch at Barney Greengrass on the fifth floor of the Barney's store in Beverly Hills. We had a reservation for our seven people and the weather permitted us to sit outside, which was very pleasant, with a nice view of the mountains in one direction. I thought the food was okay (not bad, not great) and the portion sizes a bit small for the money. www.barneys.com/Barneys%20New%20York%...
assuming you don't want to head farther south to Gjelina, here are a few other ideas:
Porta Via in Beverly Hills - love their brunch and patio as well
Oliviero at the Avalon in Beverly Hills for a lovely poolside brunch
Tanzore in Beverly Hills is Indian and brunch is 19.95
Anisette in Santa Monica
Border Grill in Santa Monica
