Easter Brunch

Easter Brunch at the Athenaeum is a special treat. Spending time where Einstein and similar have been is inspiring. The massive feast is presented on several tables and manned carving / serving stations. With reservations at the first seating we enjoyed the food area artistic and detailed set up before things were rearranged. Mr. Monk would approve of this first view. Two ice sculptures and melon art were part of the theme decorations. Mr. Bunny poses for pictures and leads egg hunts for the kids. Great wait staff and live piano music add to the dining pleasure. Concentrating on selecting uncommon, for us, items on our trips back to the food area is satisfying. A unique happy experience.

This classic campus location has a nice dining room and menu choices. I've had both breakfast and dinner, both very nice. The service level is first class, the ambiance is first class. It has ample parking and valet some busy nights

This is the Caltech faculty club, and only members can access the restaurant. We were here with friends for the prime rib buffet. It was excellent, with an excellent service. We had a wonderful time.

It was a wonderful moment staying this fantastic club - quite, considerate, with delicious food. You can just walk into the Caltech campus - bringing the memory of being a student there. The surrounding, the buildings are all the same even after so many years. definitely worthy every second of the stay.

This is the dining club at Cal Tech, and you must be a guest of one of the club members. The food is quite good, and the setting is lovely. It's old-fashioned, and elegant, like an Los Angeles movie set.
