A Food Affair (Pico-Robertson): 3-Course prix fixe menu, $66/pp. This would be our top choice of the lot simply because they offer FREE CORKAGE. Bring your favorite $5 TJs bottle or splurge on a nice bottle of DeLoach OFS Zin (Our favorite red!).

Your best bet is to head to West Hollywood. Apparently everyone who lives in that area either A) doesn’t work or B) is a model/actor with a flexible schedule, because this is the mecca of mid-week bottomless mimosa deals:
