Brunch - West Hollywood/Beverly Hills - for 12 people
I'm in charge of planning a brunch for some friends who will be visiting after moving to China in January. It's for this Sunday (May 23rd) for 12 people @ 11am. It would be nice to have a private or semi-private room and alcohol is a must for this group :). Probably best to stay under $20 per person for food (not including drinks & tax). Maybe a place with an outdoor patio?
Most of the group lives in West Hollywood, so around that area would be best or evenBeverly Hills. Thanks so much in advance.
One place to check out would be Taste on Melrose. They offer a nice variety of brunch options that are pretty economical. I'm not certain about the private (or semi private) room availability.
Another possiblity is Belmont Cafe on La Cienega. They have a really fun Bloody Mary do it yourself bar that makes the afternoon take on a whole new spin. ;-D>

You could probably do brunch at Jar for about that and sit in the area just past the bar or Campanile upstairs.
Comme Ca has a back room and fantastic cocktails. Food would definitely be in your price point.
Thanks for all the great ideas! Will definitely look into them.
Any thoughts about Cecconi? It doesn't get great reviews here, but the patio looks pretty and it is walking distance to other bars (which will likely happen with this group).
