Maison Akira is Zagat rated and Yelp gives it 4 stars. Below are links to the restaurant, brunch menu, and Yelp reviews:
If you enjoy both Japanese and French cuisine, Maison Akira could be the ideal restaurant for your taste buds! The chef/owner is Japanese and studied his craft in Japan and France. I've read and heard some great things about this place so, if you can, please join me for a satisfying Sunday brunch in March!
Since this is my first time organizing a Meetup, I won't have a gender balance requirement and the # of attendees is tentative at the moment (will consider increasing attendance based on interest). Brunch price is $36 (not including tax/gratuity) or $39 if you wish to include a glass of champagne. I realize the price tag is a little high, but it's also "all you can eat" :-)))
I'll send final details to all attendees closer to date. After brunch, walking off the calorie load in Old Town Pasadena would be an option.
UPDATE: Total expected to pay per person is about $40 including taxes. Please bring cash.
