Brunch and ...

IN THE MOOD

April 24, 2003|Jessica Strand

Mimosa and film

At the ArcLight Hollywood, you can sip a mimosa and snack on fresh-baked pastries while you check out movie times, then settle in for brunch: a spinach and cheese omelet, say, or French toast made with Grand Marnier-infused brioche. There are plenty of homey desserts, such as apricot bread pudding or chocolate-pecan brownies. Then enjoy a movie. Brunch served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday. (Brunch, $20; brunch and a movie, adult, $30; child under 12, $27.95.)

Omelets and jazz

Just a couple of weeks ago, Frank Sinatra's grandson covered several of his granddad's tunes at Twin Palms during lunch. The performers change weekly, but the music is always soft jazz. Brunch features a waffle, ice cream and omelet station as well as a carving table (beef, pork, turkey), poached salmon, salads, fruits and a dessert table. Brunch, 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. (Brunch, adult, $15.95; child 3 to 12, $5.95; under 3, free.)

Body and soul

For the first hour, enjoy House of Blues' giant brunch buffet of Southern food: fried chicken, Cheddar cheese grits, hickory-smoked bacon, biscuits with old-fashioned gravy. There's also a dessert table full of things such as key lime tarts. The second hour is an uplifting performance of gospel music by a local, regional and/or national gospel group. Seating from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. (Gospel brunch, adult, $33; child 5 to 12, $16.50; under 5, free.)

House of Blues, 8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, (323) 848-5100.
