    I wonder if you could get in over at Zengo's in the revamped SM Place Mall? Jsandler posted about their Sunday brunch, which seems like a great deal for some great food: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/779404

    395 Santa Monica Place, Santa Monica, CA 90401

      Good luck if you do, I get the feeling that mall is going to be a zoo today.

        Bouchon starts brunch service @ 10:00 today. Lots of brunches around, the difficulty is getting in at the last minute. No reservations could be a real problem. However, La Provence in Brentwood Gardens, might be a reasonable, last minute option. Very very kid friendly.

        Where did you end up and how was it? We went over to the Santa Monica Umami (at Fred Segal 500 5th Street, Santa Monica 90401) about 2 PM and, while it was doing very good business we waited only 5 minutes for a table. The waitress was great and the food was very good (triple pork burger for me). Our son ordered a smattering of sides (smushed, tots, onion rings) and we all shared (the woman of the hour/'day, myself and our son's girlfriend). Very nice and they have such a big, free non valet parking lot it makes it very easy.
