The Wilshire Restaurant (Top Chef star Nyesha Arrington helms the kitchen) has recently launched a pretty spectacular Sunday weekly, and that happens to be a buffet-style brunch that is not to be missed. Since I normally relegate buffets (read: gorge parties) to Vegas, if even that, it’s really easy for me to dismiss these all-you-can eat, self-serve extravaganzas.
However, the Wilshire Restaurant’s Sunday deal has not only the brunch plate essentials, but bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Mary bar – plus a really neat patio ensconced in the cool, Santa Monica air – at the very reasonable price of $35 per person. It runs throughout the daytime for your leisure, so if you are into loitering, you could go from 11 AM until 5 PM if you really wanted to – but that would be pretty tacky.
Included are cheeses, charcuterie, an omelette station, beet salad, roasted red peppers, granola and yogurt, fruit, dessert bar and hot dishes such as French toast and berries. My favorite was certainly the Crab Benedict topped with Tomato Hollandaise. The hot items have to periodically be refilled from the kitchen, but it’s worth the wait.
On the liquid brunch front, order your OJ-bubbly concoction or go with the spice and garnish-rich Bloody Mary bar. It’s glorious to the BM-lover that I am, and I easily subbed gin for vodka, so if you’re into that, don’t be afraid to ask.
If you happen to be into portion control or see something on the a la carte menu that strikes your fancy, you can also order from that and add the bottomless option for $15. Win-win.
Have a great weekend and enjoy your Sunday, whatever you happen to fancy.
