Pre-wedding brunch that's not too expensive?

emilia | Dec 26, 2010 07:56 PM

Hi hounders,

Newish to LA so your advice would be greatly appreciated. I need some help finding a good spot to host a small brunch for my friends who are about to get married. There will only be 5 of us, but I wanted to find a place that takes reservations with a nice atmosphere & is slightly more upscale (eg, no ordering at the counter), yet avg brunch entree <$16 or so. oh, and the food needs to be AWESOME.

We're all coming from around mid-city/west hollywood so around there would be great, but can travel for excellent food. The soon-to-be married couple are mostly vegetarian, but we don't need a veg. restaurant, as long as there are options (however, this rules out Jar for having too few options)

Some thoughts are:

-Tavern (but i've heard mixed reviews on the brunch?)
-Gjelina (but seems to be communal tables?)
-Campanile (i've heard a lot but never been; i know the atmosphere is nice but how's the food?)

ps: we love Square One but would prefer something a little more upscale. Didn't love the brunch at BLD so much. Little Dom's brunch was just ok. Mozza is booked.

please help...thanks!
