After you’ve said your “I dos,” danced as husband and wife for the first time, cut into your wedding cake, and popped the champagne, keep the wedding celebration rolling with a day-after brunch. For a brunching experience that’s just as memorable as the wedding itself, we’ve put together a list of five LA restaurants with delicious brunch menus and private dining spaces where you and your closest friends and family can relive all the memories of the night before while sipping mimosas and digging into stacks of French toast.
Cecconi’s West Hollywood
Situated on starry Melrose Avenue, this celebrity-adored restaurant has a private dining room that’s perfect for a post-wedding brunch. Layered in black-and-white marble flooring and ornate light fixtures, the chicly decorated Butterfly Room can accommodate up to 40 guests. Dig into brunch crowd-pleasers like decadent ricotta hotcakes with blueberry compote, wood oven pizza topped with squash blossom and black truffles, and spaghetti with Maine lobster. Then, toast the occasion with glasses of rose, champagne, or wine.
Fig & Olive
Nestled on the lush, tree-lined Melrose Place, Fig & Olive’s plush White Atrium (seats up to 50 guests) is beautifully appointed with olive trees and rosemary plants and bathed in natural light. The prix fixe brunch menu includes choices like zucchini carpaccio, French omelet, brioche French toast dripping with fig and cinnamon jam, and caramelized apple tarts for dessert—all paired with boozy drinks like Bellinis, Bloody Marys, and sangria.
Café Del Rey
For a post-wedding brunch by the sea, turn to Café del Rey in Marina del Rey. Elegant and downright cozy, the restaurant’s private Regatta Room can seat 10-50 guests and boasts a fireplace and awe-inspiring views of the marina. Here, you and your loved ones will dig into classic brunch dishes like Dungeness crab cakes, eggs benedict, and croquet madame sandwiches while sipping sparkling wine and mimosas.
Republique will blow you and your brunch guests away with its mouth-watering brunch offerings that include Belgian waffles, omelets, smoked salmon tartine, and dry-aged beef burgers. Intimate groups of less than 30 can take a seat in the semi-private right bank mezzanine room, while larger groups of up to 62 can enjoy brunch in the spacious main dining room replete with soaring ceilings, stunning chandeliers, and large mirrors.
The Restaurant at Mr. C
Celebrate your first brunch as a married couple with a lavish spread at The Restaurant at Mr. C in Beverly Hills. The Italian restaurant will cater to you and up to 60 guests in its private dining space. Their culinary team will even help you tailor the menu specifically to your liking. Choose from a variety of soups, pizzas, and pastas, as well as brunch staples like berry-stuffed French toast, omlettes, pastries and freshly squeezed juices.
