Brunch in Philly

Hello All,

My wife and I will be in Philly for the weekend over Valentine's Day - I have reservations at Morimoto for dinner and I'd like to find a noteworthy brunch experience the next morning. We're staying at the Ritz. Any suggestions?

  1. The brunch at the Four Seasons Hotel used to be, what can I say? INCREDIBLE. ASTOUNDING. SUMPTUOUS. ELEGANT. Alas, we haven't been in Philly for a number of years due to circumstances, but if we were going there for Valentine's, it would be our number one choice. (I hope nobody's going to say that it's now suddenly in decline, I would be so sad.)

    1. Lacroix.

      You won't find a more "noteworthy" brunch in the city.

        I second Lacroix in the Rittenhouse Hotel..not too far from the Ritz. Amazing food, and a great view of Rittenhouse Square

      2. Yes, Lacroix is extraordinary - here's a review:

          We're going to Lacroix for brunch for our Valentine's celebration. There is nothing that comes close to it in Philly. Hurry and make reservations!

            Would anyone happen to know what Lacroix is currently charging for brunch? I'm thinking of going this weekend.

              Last I checked it was $58 ( a few months ago.)

                Oh good! Thank you very much. I was thinking it might be closer to $75/person, which although doable, is pretty dear.

        2. Lacroix. Definitely the best brunch in Philly!

          1. Are you looking for good ambiance or just good food for lunch? If you want a good brunch with a cozy ambiance, try Cochon on South Philly.

            BTW, cancel Morimoto (unless you are doing the tasting menu) and go someplace else like Fuji in Collingswood if you want good sushi.

            1. I'd love to hear a report of how the brunch goes if you do Lacroix. I'm leaving the area soon for a new job and was thinking of doing it as a fancy sendoff brunch. I know there was a a recent chef shakeup there, so i'm curious whether the food still deserves the "adventurous and exquisite" it's so often been labeled.

                Jason Cichonski, the new executive Chef has been there for some time and is very competent.
