Easter brings the new season. Celebrate it with a GREAT meal!

San Pedro and the Palos Verdes Peninsula offer great dining experiences and the chefs are literally working overtime to make some special offerings.

The Sunday Brunch at Ports O’ Call Waterfront Dining has been consistently voted the very best in the South Bay and Easter is always really over the top.

It begins at 9:30 a.m. with the last seating at 2 p.m. (And get your reservations now for the first seating and you’ll get free tickets on Spirit Cruises’ first harbor cruise of the day.)

The renowned brunch offers free-flowing Champagne and an omelet station, fresh-made waffles, unlimited bacon (!), eggs benedict, taco station, snow crab legs, and lots, lots more.

Ala carte dinner service begins at 3 p.m. on the wonderful waterfront patio and at 4 p.m. in the dining room.
