Let's talk about brunch.

It might seem a little early in the week to go there, after all, most of us have two whole sleep-deprived days of burnt work coffee and vending machine granola bars to get through before we can start dreaming of bourbon-laced brioche french toast.

But if you know anything about L.A. brunches, you know you've got to plan.

Here to help us strategize our Sunday is Lesley Bargar-Suter, dine editor for Los Angeles Magazine, who recently published a guide to L.A. brunches.
