Recs in Valley Blvd. Vicinity for Small Group - Narrow the Expansive Net

MoonpieLover | Oct 3, 2011 12:17 PM

Need your help to decide where to go for a family weekend brunch/lunch on or near Valley Blvd. that will appeal to a variety of palates - from mild-mannered to pretty sophisticated foodie. There will be about 12-14 of us so the room and service should be able to accommodate us. Originally we were planning on going to a traditional dim sum place, but now we're widening the net since it seems like there may be better food beyond the cart - which of course has thrown the decision into indecision - and we need some help reeling it in.

So it can be any cuisine or region and we're not fixated on atmosphere either - a large banquety style room or small hole in the wall would both be acceptable (but we can get a bit raucous when there's piles of food in front of us, so no church-of-food places). Interesting food is okay but we're not looking for extreme eating or offal worship - not that there's anything wrong wtih that - and if it's on the manu a few people might go there, but not all. Primarily we're looking for really good food, not expensive, that will take good care of us - plus it needs to be open Sundays and located on or near the Valley Blvd. strip (within a couple of miles, we're going to a nearby event right afterward. Which also means the service can't be toooo languid).

These are on the short list - your yeas, nays, or alternates would be much appreciated: Michele’s Pancakes, Sea Harbor, Luscious Dumplings, Chung King, JTYH.

Thanks all.
