Cinque Terre West, located 970 Monument Street, is introducing a holiday brunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 18.
At the carving station will be brisket, and salmon with roasted cauliflower.
At the hot station, guests can choose scrambled eggs with turkey sausage or bacon or build your own omelet. There will be blueberry lemon pancakes with syrup.
The cold station will include yogurt, berries and granola. There will be two salads to choose from: kale Caesar or the quinoa.
Whenever guests from out-of-town visit, one of the questions is where to go for a Sunday buffet. Most towns across America have a restaurant that offers that option.
Until now, there hasn’t been a restaurant in Pacific Palisades that sponsors a buffet. Restaurant co-owner Marlo Vinzoni said, “We are going to try it out and if we have a positive response. We will offer it perhaps once it twice a month.”
The buffet event will also include a mobile fashion pop-up with Stradora Los Angeles.
Stradora L.A. Moda Italiana is described as “two Italian girls expressing their voice through fashion consultations and looks. All products are 100 percent made in Italy, with the concept of ready-to-wear clothing, but timeless and high end.” There is limited availability because each piece is unique. New items are imported monthly.
To make buffet reservations, call (310) 454-0709. The cost is $49 and $29 for kids 10 and under. If you are a member of Enoteca Cinque by Cinque Terre West, the cost is $39.
Enoteca Cinque also offers a membership deal for restaurant goers, that includes special wine tastings, at least once a month with winemakers. The tasting includes food pairings for members and one guest. Membership also includes access to Cinque Terre’s secret wine list and 15% off meals (Tuesday-Thursday) at Cinque Terre West for the member and one guest
