Champagne Brunch in the Park Cities or North Dallas?

tomthbomb May 9, 2013 12:47 PM

These use to proliferate in Dallas, mainly in hotels, but at other restaurants as well.
We use to enjoy brunch at the Malachite Room at the Intercontinental Hotel in Addison but I think that went away a few years ago.
Suggestions please?

    Brunch at the Mansion, the Garden Room at the Rosewood Crescent or the St. Germain can't be beat.

      Thanks for the recommendations. My corporate office is located in the Crescent so I had rather put some distance between my brunch and the office.
      I would like to keep the cost in the $80 + tip for two as well so the Mansion may be out of my budget.

        You say that like the corporate office is a bad thing ;)

        Would you mind specifying the brunch features you're specifically looking for? Is the champagne a must? Do you want a buffet, not a buffet ... ?

        Not in your specified geographical area but perhaps perfect for a weekend staycation ... the brunch buffet (with custom egg station) at the Four Seasons in Las Colinas is hard to beat. It's perhaps just over your budget.

          "You say that like the corporate office is a bad thing ;)"

          Not at all. My company that offices in the Crescent Court is the reason I can enjoy Sunday Champagne Brunches. I just don't want to bump into any Monday - Friday folks on Sunday. ;^)

          "Is the champagne a must?"

          For this, yes. The only time I imbibe champagne is at a Sunday Brunch and I really look forward to the treat.
          It has been two years since the last time. That was at the Blue Mesa Grill which I enjoyed but it was not what I consider to be a 1st class Sunday Brunch.

          "It's perhaps just over your budget."

          Not at all. Just outside of the geographical area to which I wish to travel.

            You might also inquire about a Sunday "Champagne Brunch" at either the Fairmont Hotel or the Adolphus Hotel.
            Both very dependable for food and drink.

              Thank you! Yes, I will inquire. Can you recommend them from your own experience?

                Yes. For dinner only. Wonderful experiences at both hotels for dinner.
                Never had brunch at either hotel but I would imagine both would serve a first class Sunday brunch service.

                  Thank you so much.
                  If anyone has an experience at these or other Sunday Brunch locations I would appreciate a recommendation.

      Sunday brunch at the Intercontinental is still there. http://www.icdallas.com/dining/sunday...

        Thank you.
        I see the restaurant is now the Q de Cheval, not the Malachite Room. We will try it again!
        Any more suggestions?
