Best Brunch Cities in the U.S.

Slide 3 of 14

Los Angeles

Brunching in L.A. often revolves around networking. Tables at the restaurant in Andre Balazs’s Chateau Marmont fill up with celebrity guests who appreciate the no-photography rule, from Sofia Coppola to the Olsen twins. Over in Venice Beach, vegetable-focused California cuisine informs the brunch offerings at Gjelina, which features poached eggs with asparagus, mushrooms and Parmesan bread crumbs. For an elegant brunch, Top Chef Masters alum Suzanne Tracht serves refined retro dishes like brioche French toast with roasted bananas and a hearty pot roast hash at Jar.
