Thanks all for your recommendations. We just returned from our trip . . . and it is time for Betty Ford.
There was a large group of us, so all of the decisions were not mine to make (and we had been to several of your suggestions in years past).
So this time we ended up going to:
Country Club for Easter Brunch - We had a great time. The buffet was fine, nothing all that special, but good. The items that you could order off the menu (included in the price) were better than the buffet items. Bottomless Rose Champange was a nice touch.
Bardot Brasserie - loved it. Everything we ordered was great - we were there for brunch. Server was great. Botttomless rose wine was a nice touch.
Nora Italian - it was fine. I’m not sure why it is so hyped, maybe most people just don’t have any decent Italian restaurants? I wouldn’t take the cab ride again to get to it though, but if I was local I’d go again.
Rose Rabbit Lie - great cocktails, great servers, cool space. We had a few plates of food to share and enjoyed them all.
El Dorado Cantina - a mexican place adjacent to a strip club - very vegas right? I was surprised that it was filled with families (given it is attached to the club). The margaritas were strong and I had 3 different tacos, all of which were very good. I can’t really tell you how everyone else liked their food (they were all too drunk to really remember
I wish I had taken more food notes - but I remember the cocktails. LOL It was that type of trip this time.
