  • Circa 55 at the Beverly Hilton, 11am – 4pm. $81/pp ($30 for kiddos under 12). Brunch includes free flowing Prosecco and is served Poolside. No details on the menu yet but their typical Sunday spread includes a bunch of really delightful sounding salads (channeling my mom in that description), lobster rolls, pan seared salmon, hanger steak, breakfast favorites, and an over-the-top dessert assortment.
  • Mr. C Beverly Hills, 11am – 4pm. $115/pp ($49 for kiddos 4-12) + $30 for Bottomless Mimosas. Whether or not you spring the extra cash for the bottomless bubbly, Mom will get a free Bellini to start her meal + some free treatments from the GlamSquad. Once buzzed and pampered,  you can go attack the buffet, featuring pastas, antipasto, made to order waffles and omelets, fresh seafood, carving stations with roast beef and turkey, and a ton of desserts. (Luckily elastic waist bands and joggers are in right now, so you can still be chic AND comfortable after gorging yourself.)
  • The Peninsula Beverly Hills, 11:00am – 8:00pm. $135/pp. ($68 for kiddos). Adult price includes free flowing Nicholas Feuillatte Champagne (that’s the good shit.) This meal is served family style, and includes fancy things the The Crawley family would undoubtedly serve at one of their smashing dinner parties –  Cornish Game Hen, Crab Croquettes, Braised Veel, and Cherry Blossom Tarlets. (Yeah, we’re still missing Downton Abbey…) 
  • The Royce in Pasadena, 11am – 3pm. $92/pp ($40 for kiddos 4-12). Adult price includes free flowing mimosas + bloody marys. No details on the menu yet, but (as always) they are advertising ‘elaborate displays’ of fresh food items.

  • The Eclectic in North Hollywood, 11am – 3pm. $27 Brunch, includes any entree + bottomless mimosas, champagne or sangria.
  • Stella Barra Pizza in Santa Monica, 11am – 4pm. Ala Carte Menu with items ranging from $10-$15 + $12 Bottomless Mimosas. We’re thinking go splitsies on some Breakfast Pizzas, get buzzed on some mimosas, and then wander over to the beach and wow your mom with your Sandle Castle-making skills. She always loved that shit when you were a kid.

Some of you may feel Easter Sunday means church and family. That’s nice.

WIN TICKETS: LA Weekly’s Brunch at The Races

One of our closest friends (we’ll call her ‘Pretty Little Pony’) loves horses. She loves them a  lot. Supposedly she rode horses as a child and thus this fascination has a foundation, but we just like to make it a weird thing so we can make fun of her…. like a crazy cat lady. Because we are really nice friends.

Why are we telling you this? Well, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to LA Weekly’s ‘Brunch at the Races‘, going down October 18th 11am – 2pm at Santa Anita Park. It’s brunch + ponies! unnamed

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: AREAL

***5/1/15 UPDATE: Areal will now be offering #BottomlessMimosas during lunch DAILY! More details to come…***

Long ago, this spot was the home to World Cafe, and we celebrated V’s bday there for a very boozy  brunch. We probably spent a good three hours consuming the glorious orange bubbly beverage, and as a result members of our party believed they could speak Japanese (they couldn’t; sounded racist), created fictitious personalities (Havannah Pete!), and got lost wandering home. So we were sad when the spot closed, even sadder when we learned its replacement AREAL wouldn’t be offering the same deal.

Long story short: we’re now very happy to announce AREAL has joined the bottomless booze-fest train.


Brunching Spot: AREAL, Santa Monica

Boozy Brunch Hours: Sundays, starting at 10:00am

Bottomless Mimosa Deal: $15 Bottomless Mimosas for 2-hours

Menu Highlights: Mimosas. And the Grilled Pomegranate Molasses Marinated Steak. Way heavier than our normal brunch choice but sweet and tangy red-meat sounds delicious right now.
