Sunday Birthday Brunch for 14 people

Any suggestions for such a large group? Somewhere westside, Venice/SM/Culver City. Nothing too cheap but not $50 a head ala hotels in SM.

    Zengo in the new Santa Monica Place has their ZENGO BRUNCH. Asian-latin cusine
    with Unlimited Small Plates and Free-Flowing Cocktails for $35 per person. I was there for Father's day and it's very good. Loved the duck hash. Great 3rd floor patio too.

      I like Fig in the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica. Very good farm fresh cuisine.

        wienermobile covered my first two thoughts...the other one that might work is 26 Beach.

          for $35 a head before tax and tip but INCLUDING bubbly/mimosas, you can get a three course brunch at CAFE DEL REY in marina del rey.
          admittedly, i sorely miss the pastries that used to be served when Carlos was the pastry chef, but the deal-as-a-whole is still exceptional.

          here is the menu:

            Thanks for the suggestions. Cafe del Rey popped into my mind as did Joes but like the other thoughts. Might try 26 beach as I've never been. Thanks for the suggestions.

              at about $10 per glass of wine, if you imbibe 2 glases of wine at this brunch, the total tab at 26 beach won't be much different than that at cafe del rey where the bubbly is included in the price.

                26 Beach will stuff you for $15 per person and then you got some money to spend on drinks. Do it! www.26beach.com http://www.yelp.com/biz/26-beach-rest...
