Post-Oscar brunch spots

Recap the night that was with post-Oscar brunch at these L.A. eateries.


This Italian eatery made its debut last Oscar season, moving into coveted real estate once occupied by a ghost of Academy Awards' past, Morton's. Soak up the previous evening's sins with an order of waffles topped with mascarpone cheese and blood oranges, or -- now that awards season is over -- reintroduce yourself to carbs with the pappardelle with wild boar ragout. 8764 Melrose Ave.

Culina at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
Like many gorgeous Angelenos, the Four Seasons on Doheny had a little work done and recently finished a $33 million renovation. Their new restaurant Culina just opened and promises to be a post-Oscar Monday it-spot. 300 S. Doheny Dr.

The Terrace at Sunset Tower Hotel
The Terrace patrons crave privacy and trust the staff isn't making backroom calls to TMZ. Here, you can enjoy your California Omelet with avocado and a smoothie in private at a poolside cabana, or celebrate your win decadently with chocolate chip pancakes away from the sun's rays, inside the restaurant. 8358 W. Sunset Blvd.

The Ivy

As everyone in town knows, this is where to go if you want to be photographed Monday morning. Breakfast, replete with fresh squeezed orange juice, will start at 9 a.m. Notice who's sitting at Table 41 on the patio but don't gawk. 113 N. Robertson Blvd.

Patio at Chateau Marmont
With its private dinner soirees and a staff who knows how to accommodate a celebrity's every wish, Chateau Marmont has long been a gathering place for the industry during awards season. Set your Oscar right on the table and enjoy your eggs. 8221 W. Sunset Blvd.
