i'm looking for a spot in irvine for a special occasion sunday brunch for about 30-40 people (kids included), preferably indoors.
we've already investigated and had to cross off a few spots from the list due to various reasons: waters, ruby's, il fornaio, mimi's, sam woo.
the preference would be for a "waters" feel i think. the hosts need to have the restaurant located in irvine and the restaurant must take reservations. as you can tell, they are open to a variety of cuisine. they would go with dim sum, but they don't like any of the places in irvine.
i found a couple of other options to present, but don't know anything about them:
* lucca cafe
* vessia ( http://www.vessia.com/ )
