Super-elegant brunch...Four Seasons or the Ritz?

I'm considering either Seasons at the Four Seasons or The Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton for a super elegant Sunday brunch for four ladies. It's for a group of us who dines out regularly; we like Spring, May Street Market, Meritage, Blackbird, and while it sounds cheesy, we we're looking for a place where we can get decked out in our Sunday best. Any thoughts? Money isn't an issue.

  1. You absolutely cannot go wrong at the Ritz. I was just there a couple of weeks ago and it was spectacular. One of the best brunches I've had anywhere.

    1. I agree, it's a lovely brunch. But you may be only the few people dressed to the nines. It's become more casual over the years.

      1. Here's a nod for brunch at the Four Seasons...AMAZING gravlox and a decent Asian spread along with the traditional breakfast and lunch fare. You will see people dressed along all sorts and some in shorts.

        If you want to get all jazzed up in your best threads, why not consider doing afternoon tea instead? Both the Ritz and Four Seasons do it well.
