A fantastic time was had by all at the annual Easter Brunch and Coloring Bar at James’ Beach on March 27, 2016. Even the Easter bunny was there. The buffet was spectacular, with traditional and not so traditional fare, ranging from ham and quiche to sushi and smoked salmon. The kiddies enjoyed the famous egg coloring bar, manned by Danny Samakow. Live music provided a relaxed, but lively backdrop, for conversation, bloody mary’s and mimosas, awesome food, and the celebration of Easter. This event is an 18 years of family tradition at James’ Beach. View event photo highlights below!
About James Beach: James’ Beach opened in September of 1996, a ½ block from world famous Venice Beach and the Pacific ocean, taking over the location of the West Beach Café. James’ Beach immediately gained a reputation for great food, drinks and wine plus marvelous people watching. Los Angeles Times food critic, Irene Virbila reviewed that the straight forward cuisine, friendly service and beach ambience made James’ Beach “as comfortable as a favorite sweater.”
That welcoming vibe, value and quality has made James’ Beach a favorite Venice neighborhood restaurant. Visitors come to Venice to be part of the artistic, eclectic scene and there is no better place to have a drink and people watch than at James’ Beach. This may be one of the reasons that James’ Beach recently was awarded Open Table’s award for Most Vibrant Bar Scene. James’ Beach has been featured in feature films, television shows, and viral online videos like I Love You, Man, Californication, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Women of L.A. as a Venice institution. www.JamesBeach.com.
