Saturday Brunch for 5 in Santa Monica/Beverly Hills/ Brentwood/West Hollywood

Looking for a brunch/lunch place for 5 - (in-laws + grandma) for a 35th birthday

We've thought of
-Farmshop
-Bouchon
-One Pico or Coast @Shutters
-Comme Ca
-Luques
-Tavern
-Geoffreys

Any thoughts of where is best? We've only been to Farmshop for brunch. Is there somewhere you've been (max = $30/per) that's out of this world?

Rehersal Dinner Space in Beverly Hills

El Torito Grill max is about 60, but you may be able to work something out for the main dining room. They're really great to work with!

What about...
Maggiano's at The Grove
Asakuma
Napa Valley Grille
Palomino
Century Plaza Hyatt
Nate & Al's

Let me know what you end up with! We're looking for a rehearsal dinner too, somewhere the same part of town for about 50 people and El Torito Grill seems like the best bet so far!

Rehearsal Dinner in West LA Revisited

Trying to find a place about $30/person for a Saturday night in August--but still classy and sophisticated for a rehearsal dinner for 40 to 60 people. Wedding is at the Four Season on Doheny and are looking a place that can fit our budget with out sacrificing class. We're looking into the places below. Is there somewhere we're missing, and should look into?

El Torito Grill on Wilshire
Da Pasquale
Maggiano's at The Grove
The Farm on Beverly

We wanted to consider Beech Street in the Palisades but it might be too expensive...

Thanks so much!

reasonably priced sushi to impress the out-of-towners

How about Takao on San Vicente & Darlington? Recently tried it and am in love. Service is great, just need to make sure and make reservations, as it's a fairly small place. Nagao (San Vicente & 26th) is also good. Have also hear amazing things about Hamasaku on Santa Monica right before Sepulveda.

Rehearsal Dinner Westside or Valley

Any ideas of where we could look to have this? It will be about 40-60 people. A private room would be ideal.

Thanks!

Engagement Party

Looking for somewhere in the Valley (along Ventura) or West LA. Less than $30/person and that could appeal to our parents and friends. Thank you!

Anyone know a good place for an engagement party for about 50-60 people that wouldn't be too expensive per person? Thanks!

Lawrys Menu (for a non-red meat eater)

Am going to Lawrys tonight for dinner with my fiance and his mom and grandma; however, I don't eat red meat. Has anyone who doesn't eat red meat, eaten there before? What do you suggest to order?

Thanks!

Cheap Challah on the Westside

Best is definitely sold at San Vicente Foods. You can get some (average) in the bakery (back right corner of store) but the best is on the kosher baked goods stand/shelves right nearby to the bakery!

Dinner with Future In-Laws in Pasadena

Any recommendations for a reasonably priced dinner in Pasadena? We'll be checking out the Langham hotel beforehand, and would love a place to decompress afterwards that has a lot of food options, especially on the healthier side --his dad is pre-diabetic.

Thanks!!

Anyone suggest a place for a reasonably priced (under $20/person) for dinner on a weeknight in Beverly Hills? I was thinking maybe Oishi, Bossa Nova, Frida or maybe trying LA Food Show. Any thoughts?

Thank you!

Best Breakfast Santa Monica/Brentwood

Have two friends visiting from out-of-town this week and we're meeting up for a later breakfast. We're all students, so something on the cheaper side is preferable. Any thoughts on good places on Montana, Wilshire or Santa Monica?

Thanks!

Monday Night Dinner in Brentwood/Westwood

I'm meeting up with a group of my girl friends for dinner in Westwood/Brentwood and am looking for a place that's good and inexpensive but not a chain (like CPK). It also needs to have good parking since they're coming from the Valley. Any ideas?
