After being under the weather and cooped up in our apartment for a week, we were in need of a revitalizing, upscale Sunday Brunch, so we headed to Catamaran Resort & Spa in Pacific Beach for a seafood and sushi-dominant buffet featuring bottomless champagne at the hotel's newly-redesigned, bayfront restaurant Oceana Coastal Kitchen. What we didn't know is that we would also come away from brunch with a delicious dinner for later!
Oceana's coastal-inspired brunch is offered every Sunday from 10am to 2pm, and includes expansive bay views, indoor and al fresco seating, an 800-gallon moon jellyfish aquarium, unlimited champagne with a variety of juices, a buffet featuring sushi and exceptionally fresh raw bar selections, an array of other items including fresh fruits and cheeses, and a choice of one of eight entree options that can be taken to-go if you happen to fill up on seafood and other delights, like we certainly did.
