60th b-day lunch

eyelean Nov 17, 2011 05:21 PM

Looking for a special restaurant that has brunch or lunch on a Sunday to celebrate a 60 th birthday. It is a group of 6 ladies and we are willing to go anywhere even though we live in the San Fernando Valley!
Thanks for all suggestions.

    Spago? Or Wolfgang Pucks new restaurant in the Bel Air Hotel?
    I would say Providence....but they're only open on Friday for lunch.
    That's where I took a good friend for her 60th....

          Have you been to the Bel Air since it reopened. Loved it before, but can't seem to find a menu online for the new Wolfgang Puck restaurant

            Can't find Hotel Bel Air's menu anywhere but here is a very recent review with some great photos. I have not been there. Hope it helps:

              The photographs are beautiful. I would like to read a review by a critic with more credibility than Jay Weston.

                I have a good friend who lives just up a bit past the hotel on Stone Canyon and all of the local neighbors were invited for the soft opening. My friend said that just looking at the remodel she hated it. All the rustic charm was gone was her assessment. I'll go up and have drinks some night, but it didn't sound at all promising.

                  Skimming the article, I'm not excited. We were married at the Bel Air and it holds a special charm. I'm not excited to go and just order a steak but the other items mentioned, weren't appealing. In fact, I thought the photo of the poached egg with the foam looked revolting!
