Next Sunday we are heading to Eden Cemetary for the family tradition of visiting the graves. Another family tradition is driving around looking for somewhere to eat afterwards. I'd like to avoid the driving around part.
The cemetary is at 11500 Sepulveda Boulevard in Mission Hills. Most of the family lives on the westside (except us, we live in Sherman Oaks), so the group will be needing to head south on the 405 to get home.
Any suggestions for a casual but sit-down/table service brunch or lunch, where we can make reservations, along the way down? Northridge, Encino? I'd love to go to Brent's but we will be a party of 10 and I don't want to have to wait 2 hours to get in.
Maybe something like Cafe Bizou but not as expensive and actually good?
