Easter Brunch in LA, 2016

Some of you may feel Easter Sunday means church and family. That’s nice.
For us it means  getting sick-full on eggs (both the chocolate and breakfast variety), ham, jelly beans (served raw), and mimosas.

The most recent Nikki tip brings us to Westwood for boozy brunch:

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Caulfield’s

Spring = Spring Break = Tons of tourists in LA lazily meandering Rodeo Drive and blocking the intersections while you try to get to work/spin/dinner. We’d like to help solve this problem:

If you have friends/family visiting LA and they need to pick a hotel, tell them to stay at SIXTYBeverlyHills. On top of it being a cool hotel with a great rooftop pool, right in the center of Pretty-Woman-land, the restaurant downstairs (Caulfield’s) serves bottomless mimosas AND bloody marys all weekend. No walking required. They can just go downstairs and get boozy…. With you, hopefully.

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Marvin

We have always discussed a bottomless mimosa crawl. We wouldn’t be the first to do it – but we’d like to think all our experience would enable us to create the best route. It would have to take place in WeHo/Mid City, as that’s the mecca for bottomless mimosas. Seems like every week there is new spot to try in this area,  case in point:

prix fixe vday menus-page-001

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.

Ca Del Sole (Toluca Lake): 3-Course prix fixe menu$65/pp. Featuring a bunch of  great Italian items to choose from for each course. We’re thinking beef carpaccio followed by grilled colorado lamb chops, and finished with creme caramel would be a great combo!
