Yamashiro Launches Sunday Brunch
Series Starting Mother’s Day 2017
Originally built in 1914 as a private residence, Yamashiro (“Mountain Palace” in Japanese) took its inspiration from the classical Asian art and architecture that was the passion and business of its original owners the Bernheimer brothers. Over its 102-year life, it’s taken on many identities including a brothel and a boarding house, before becoming a private cocktail lounge for the golden era of the Hollywood elite in 1963. A full-service restaurant soon followed, ultimately catapulting Yamashiro into a world-famous dining destination in the 1970s and ’80s. The property’s regal Asian influences and breathtaking, 180-degree views from downtown Los Angeles to the Santa Monica shore have been featured in popular films such as Memoirs of a Geisha, Gone in 60 Seconds, and Kill Bill, as well as numerous travel shows.
Yamashiro Hollywood is launching a new Sunday Brunch buffet this Mother’s Day, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The iconic restaurant, which previously only opened for dinner, will continue brunch service year-round every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A longtime Hollywood favorite of locals and travelers alike for celebrating special occasions, the scenic restaurant’s brunch service will feature a buffet with multiple themed stations with dish selections including crab legs, shrimp cocktail, oysters, prime rib, chicken and waffles, omelets, build-your-own salads and cold favorites like smoked salmon and yogurts. For dessert, guests can choose from a variety of danishes and cupcakes.
All moms will receive a complimentary glass of champagne on Mother’s Day.
Brunch starts at $29 for kids and $50 for adults. A $65 option will include brunch and bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys or bellinis.
Yamashiro is located at 1999 Sycamore Ave. and is open from 5-11 p.m. on weekdays and 5 p.m. to midnight on weekends, in addition to Sunday Brunch service. Reservations can be made through OpenTable, via phone 323.466.5125 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
