Best Everything Brunch Los Angeles 2011 

Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch

I hate sharing this place, I really do. I am sitting outside at Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch on a beautiful Southern California Sunday listening to a great band and arguing over who gets to go next at the shuffleboard table. I gaze at the romantic chandeliers hanging from the trees and the cozy couches dotting the scenery while the whirr of the free paddleboats on the pond lulls me into a dream state. (That may also be because of the bottomless mimosas.) When you take a walk around the charmingly bucolic grounds, you realize why they have so many weddings here. While away the afternoon and enjoy a great meal in the most fantastic setting possible. I mean, I even played Frisbee. It's hard to leave when you feel like you are at the world's best barbecue. 327 Latigo Canyon Road, Malibu. (818) 540-2400, themalibucafe.com.

  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
