upscale Saturday Brunch close to Bloor and Avenue Road

Any recommendations for a nice upscale brunch, open at 11 am, that would be within walking distance of Bloor and Avenue?

I realize the food quality in Yorkville is sometimes disappointing, but the time frame for this upcoming brunch is too short to allow for travel to Little Italy,Queen West, Queen East, King East or King West. It also seems that some of the more interesting brunches only take place on Sundays (ie the place on King W run by the Alsatian chef).

Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner had crossed my mind, but it turns out they do not open until 11:30 am. I've had brunch at Cantine at Av and Dav, but it seems a little too casual for what I had in mind.

Has anyone tried the brunch at Arlequin or Lesendro?

Thanks for any of your suggestions!
