Pre-wedding brunch that's not too expensive?

emilia | Dec 26, 201007:56 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!

BLD Restaurant
7450 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Little Dom's
2128 Hillhurst Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
