Mohegan Sun vs. Foxwoods, which Sunday brunch buffet is better?
I think Stuck in Hartford is referring to the regular Sunday brunch at Foxwoods buffet restaurant in the Cedars Hotel. Burke's Prime at the Pequot Tower Hotel puts out a great champagne brunch, No lines, no cattle pens.... reservations are necessary. It's really very good. Sushi and raw bar, omelet station, carving stations, the usual eggs benedict(which weren't overcooked for a change), several lunch./dinner entrees and sides as well as stuffed french toast, bacon, sausage, etc. There's a large dessert spread with cakes, pies, chocolate fountain, etc. They bring fresh made beignets to the table which are wonderful! The last time we went, we had to ask for them because the server forgot to bring them. The service isn't the best but it's acceptable. It's $39.
My daughter and I ate at the Foxwoods Buffet before seeing the Titanic exhibit. The buffet sucked so bad it should be closed. Here are some details:
Long wait in the cattle pen (roped off area like the ones at amusement parks, but without the fun ending).
Cramped, lousy table w/persistent fly tickling my foot the whole time.
Patrons have very poor buffet manners (touching food w/hands, dumping unwanted food back in the serving dishes, dropping food into other food dishes, missing their plates and leaving food on the buffet sides...and on and on...)
Meat almost all fat. Foods heavily sauced w/cheese, butter, oil. Salad bar had defrosted veggies, and a limited selection of healthy/fresh veggies (mayo laden "salads" reign).
You would think the patrons have never eaten, and will never eat again, with the gusto they loaded their plates and returned again and again.
Yuck. The whole experience sucked. I'll never go back. I hate myself for wasting a culinary experience, but my daughter begged. I should have just told her we would stop at an ice cream store on the way home and she could order whatever she wanted. My bad.
I haven't had the buffet brunch at the Mohegan, but comparing the regular buffets, the Mohegan's is horrible. Foxwood's regular buffet is excellent and their Sunday champagne brunch is wonderful. I can't see a brunch being able to be any better it's so good. Freshly put out and everything from sushi to carving stations to breakfast items and everything inbetween.
