We're going to meet some friends that we haven't seen in awhile for Sunday brunch in a couple of weeks. They live in Piedmont so we're looking to eat in Piedmont or Berkeley. However I'm not so sure about their choice of restaurants judging from past experience. I'd like a restaurant that has really good brunch food, maybe bloody marys and would be a comfortable place to get together and talk. They suggested the Claremont which I went to years ago. I just don't care much for large buffets. I eat too much and the food isn't usually that great. Would love suggestions.
