kazhound Sep 24, 2013 06:51 PM

well, my google-fu is burnt. I can't find a thing. is there a decent brunch buffet in Brooklyn or Queens that has oysters on it? I want to organize a surprise party for my mom and it's her favorite thing. Surely there's got to be someplace??? thanks!!

    This is not what you want exactly but there is a place with clams on the half shell. The Fort Hamilton army base in Bay Ridge has a brunch every Sunday. We have our family reunion there every spring. A more interesting setting would be hard to find. It is in a historic fort with beautiful views.

      a lovely idea but I'm still holding out hope on the oysters. I'll keep this as a backup!

      This is a bit of a schlep, but Winfield's in Greenwich has a fabulous brunch:


      I called and they said that raw oysters are indeed served as part of the brunch buffet.

        this is totally what I'm looking for, but geographically it's going to be tough. though I may get desperate enough to try it!! I feel like there *has* to be something on long island. right?

          You'd think so! There might be other hotels closer to you that do something like that, but I know of none offhand.

          It is such a gorgeous space and we've always found something to enjoy there. If you do go, request for your party to be seated in the atrium rather than the side rooms.
