Valentine's Day Brunch

Maybe you don’t like her** enough to spend $150/pp on a romantic dinner and would rather cheap it out for $35/pp on a friendly brunch.

Maybe you like/love her so much you want to not only spoil her with an overpriced $150/pp meal (plus requisite $50/pp wine pairing), but you ALSO want to treat her to a delicious brunch that morning (plus requisite $15 bottomless mimosas).  The larger she gets the less likely she is to leave you… right?

Either way – you’re looking for Valentine’s Day brunch options.

The brunch scene next weekend isn’t all that different than the average weekend in LA – mostly hotels on the list – but there are a few newcomers. There also are a few special valentinesy brunch and drink items on the typical menus around town.

So whether saving or spoiling here’s the dish (sorted by area):

This seems to be where most of the brunches are located
* Viceroy Santa Monica (Sat/Sun,10:30am - 3pm): Standard Sunday Brunch Menu with Specialty VDay Cocktail Options ("Sweet Valentine" or "Lovely Bubbly")
* Geoffrey's Malibu (Sun, 10am - 4pm): $65, 3-Course, Prix-Fixe Valentine's Day Brunch (damn that's expensive for Brunch...)
* La Cachette Bistro - Santa Monica (Sun, 11am - 3pm): Special Brunch Menu

WEST SIDE & 90210
* Boulevard 16 @ Hotel Palomar (Sat/Sun, 10am - 2pm): $45 Prix-Fixe VDay Brunch OR Standard Sunday $35 Champagne Brunch
* Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge (Sun, 11am - 3:30pm): $48, 3-Course, Prix-Fixe Standard Sunday Brunch (also Includes one alcoholic beverage)

* Taste - Pacific Palisades AND Melrose Locations (Sat/Sun, 10:30am - 3pm): $23, 3-Course, Prix-Fixe Valentine's Day Brunch
*Comme Ca - WeHo (Sunday, 9am - 3pm): Extended Brunch Hours, Standard Brunch Menu

* Dakota - Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (Sun, 11am - 3pm): Sweetheart Jazz Brunch, $28 Breakfast Buffet + Signature Brunch Menu, Also Available: $10 Bottomless Bloody Mary and Bubbly Bar
*Campanile (Sun, Starting at 9:30am): 'Cupid Themed Brunch' + Bottomless Sparkling Wine.

No Valentine's Specials Found: Hipsterville apparently is void of 'lovey-doveyness'- but this makes sense as Hipster's are notoriously unhappy. I've included a few reliable regular brunches instead:
* Cliff's Edge - Silverlake (Sat/Sun, 11am - 3pm): Standard Brunch Menu
* Desert Rose - Los Feliz (Sat/Sun, 10am - 3pm): Standard Brunch Menu

* Bottega Louie (Sat/Sun, 11am - 2:45pm): Standard Brunch Menu + Special VDay Menu Items & Special VDay Gifts Available in Marketplace
*J Lounge (Sun, 10am - 2pm): Valentine's Day Brunch Menu and Drink Specials

* The Raymond - Pasadena (Sat/Sun, 10am - 2:30pm): Standard Brunch Menu
* The Langham Huntington Hotel - Pasadena (Sun, 10am - 3pm): $75 Champagne Brunch Buffet (Standard on Sundays... and very very expensive...)
* Zin Bistro Americana -Westlake (Sun, 11am - 3pm)): $34.95 VDay Champagne Brunch
