The Four Seasons Miami Used This Much Chocolate To Make Their Easter Display

April 18, 2014 at 6:00 PM | by | ()

What you're looking at is nearly two thousand pounds of chocolate. Ok, 1,700 pounds to be exact. But that's how much chocolate was used for the new "Easter Wonderland" display at the Four Seasons Miami.

Created by the hotel's new pastry chef, Keith Wallace, the display is meant to capture both the playful and colorful scenes of "Alice in Wonderland" and the playful and colorful side of Miami. Aside from the massive amounts of chocolate, the display and its 30 chocolate eggs, along with some chocolate mushrooms, took 20 hours to build.

Wallace and his team will have even more chocolates and other desserts on display at the hotel's Easter Brunch, happening on Sunday at the Edge Restaurant from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $99 for adults and $25 for children ages 5-12. Make your reservation by calling (305) 381-3190 or book online at www.edgerestaurantmiami.com.

Last Batch of Mother's Day Brunches

May 10, 2013 at 5:46 PM | by | ()

Oh, you did it again, didn't you? You forgot Mother's Day and it's end of day on Friday. So, what is your sorry self gonna do, child? There's only one solution. Feed your momma! And the best way to do it is by treating her to the time honored tradition of Mother's Day Brunch. We've got seven spots at our favorite hotel restaurants still taking razzes for May 12th. Be a good kid and book a table, whydontcha?

The Garden by David Burke, The James Hotel
Opened just last week in time for Mother's Day, this new rooftop garden restaurant is now one of the largest outdoor spaces in the city (1,000 square feet) and overlooks the bustling streets of SoHo. You've got two options at this master chef's eatery. The $42 prix fixe special is available in three-course or a la carte form. Choices include Chef Burke's specials such as the Lobster Scramble and the Pretzel Crusted Crab Cake. Naturally a mimosa or bloody Mary is included in the special, but you should ask to upgrade to the Bacon Bloody Mary made with bourbon, organic tomatoes, and maple bacon or the Bloody Apple, a blend of apple schnapps, organic tomato, and fresh apple. If you'd prefer something a bit different than brunch, now is the time to try the restaurants new Swine & Wine menu. For $39 per person, guests can choose from a variety of appetizers including gazpacho and fluke crudo, then moving on to suckling pig, and topping the meal off with either an ice cream sundae or pie-of-the-day.

Where to Do Easter Brunch on Sunday

April 5, 2012 at 1:33 PM | by | ()

This Sunday is Easter Sunday and if you can't get to London to sit in an egg chair, never fear. There are several hotels to hop to this weekend for brunch. Here are our picks:

1. The Claremont Hotel, Club & Spa
Spend the day in the East Bay of San Francisco at the grand Claremont Hotel in Berkeley which is hosting an Easter egg-stravaganza perfect for families. From 10am to 4pm, guests can dig into a special seasonal buffett from executive chef Josh Thomsen featuring dishes such as roasted prime rib of beef, Atlantic salmon, classic eggs benedict, roasted spring leg of lamb, Sonoma chicken and of course a maple glazed ham. There's even a traditional Chinese Dim Sum station too.

After you fill up, burn off the calories by taking the kids around to visit Peter Cotton Tail, partake in egg painting, a children's petting zoo, an inflatable bounce and face painting with live piano music. The cost is $89.00 per person with kids 12 and under are half off. Room rates are still available for $189 a night as well.
