If you’re feeling lazy this Sunday, these haute restaurants should be all the incentive you need to get out of bed and to start eating!
1 Culina at The Four Seaons Los Angeles
Anyone who is anyone in Hollywood brunches at the Four Seasons during Oscar time -- but this is a spot any luxury-loving Angeleno can enjoy year-round. Head to Beverly Hills, choose a seat in Culina, Modern Italian and make sure to wear a loose belt as the buffet-style options of everything from sushi to dim sum to seafood to custom-made omelettes are endless.
2 The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel
If you're seeking the classiest brunch in LA, book a table at the Polo Lounge, located inside the tony Beverly Hills Hotel. As befitting a spot that's been open for a century, the Pink Palace's brunch is as timelessly elegant as the hotel itself. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time while sipping at your champagne kir cocktail, noshing on mini waffles with lemon curd and raspberry jam as live jazz music plays softly in the background. It's a truly unforgettable experience.
3 One Pico at Shutters on the Beach
Life is a beach -- or it should be -- and the brunch menu at One Pico is catered to those who agree. Enjoy a frittata of Gruyere, artichokes and mushrooms or the Belgium waffle with whipped mascarpone all the while looking at one of the most stunning oceanfront views you're likely to find anywhere in LA.
You'll walk away a happy customer after brunching at Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne's classic Brentwood restaurant. If you need more proof that this is the place to be come Sunday than its delectable-sounding dishes like lemon ricotta pancakes with huckleberry compote or smoked fish with toasted rye & redwood hill goat cheese, then just as the experts. Both Styne and Goin and individually nominated for James Beard Awards this year.
Suzanne Tracht's haute steakhouse is known for its carnivorous fare, so why not go as big at brunch as you would at dinner? Order up 8 oz. of Prime Ribeye with you eggs or the Lobster Benedict, which also, surprisingly features meat in the form of char sui pork hidden underneath an amazing lobster béarnaise sauce.
