Have you heard about the wonderful Sunday brunch at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills? Well, I hadn’t and recently checked it out and thought, why haven’t I been doing this for years? It’s absolutely great and for Thanksgiving, they’re offering an all-day brunch. That’s right, on thursday, November 26, check out brunch at the Four Seasons if you don’t want to cook.

It seemed like almost every corner of hotel leading into Culina’s dining room was stuffed with food. There were so  many food stations including a massive raw bar, two sushi boats, omelet station, hot foods, kid’s table, dessert station and juice bar.

From the raw bar, I enjoyed the Alaskan king crab legs the best. The mussels were really good as well.

I thought the kid’s table by the bar inside Culina was so cute. There are sliders, mini Croque monsieurs, organic chicken tenders and more,  I saw an adult or two snag cupcakes which I was also tempted by.

If you want something a bit boozier than the juice bar, I recommend the Bloody Mary with gin (Red Snapper). I prefer gin as my morning pick-me-up.

I may have gone a little crazy over the salad bar. I really enjoy salad and there were so many different ones!

After a plate (or two) of greens, I felt ready to tackle all the breakfast stuff. Maybe a Belgian waffle for balance!?

Or how about cured meats? I thought about making myself a sandwich with mortadella and marinated garlic.

We liked all the juices but being from LA, I think you have to say kale is your favorite.

I was too full to get an omelet but I was certainly tempted.

I admired all the beautiful lox for the bagels but suddenly the macarons on the platter next to the bagels caught my eye. Ooh, so many interesting looking ones.

Let’s go for a ride. A sushi ride, that is. It was really hard not to mess up the sushi boats presentation by nabbing a few nigiri but well, I wanted all the hamachi — though I only took one of each offering. At some point you start scheming how you possibly can eat it all. As it was, I found the Asian section and discovered the deep fried bok choy dumplings. They were my favorite. And the egg rolls were good as well.

After tooling around the hotel looking at the hot foods, I decided it was time to get dessert. Or maybe after checking out the carving station. For Thanksgiving, you certainly want to try the lamb if they have it. They will have the traditional turkey, glazed ham and all the fixings.

There’s a chocolate fountain that’s a lot of fun twirling around a stick of fruit, marshmallows or possibly a Belgian waffle if you’re up for it. I also snagged a nutella crepe and budino. I may not be a sweets person but chocolate is my weakness.

Brunch will be served all day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thanksgiving. Breakfast items served until 3 p.m.

  • Adults: $109
  • Children: $54 (5-12 years old, children under 4 are free)
