This weekend I had the opportunity to attend a Blogger Beauty Brunch at The Azalea Restaurant at the Omni Hotel, located in the heart of Philadelphia’s historic area. I loved having a reason to get together with some local blogger friends and check out a brunch downtown!
The Omni Hotel takes brunch seriously and offers something for everyone. Sunday brunch at the Omni Hotel is the perfect way to end a weekend stay or a great way to kick off the upcoming week. Few things are better than enjoying the never ending menu and relaxing in the beautiful Azalea Restaurant among the inspiring décor.
The Sunday Brunch at the Azalea at the Omni Hotel includes one complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa per adult. Of course, that was one thing I had to pass up given my current “with child” state but boy did they look grand!
There are a wide array of dishes to select from on the buffet from smoked salmon, shrimp salad, smoked trout, white fish salad to herb crusted roasted rack of lamb, slow roasted beef tenderloin, braised veal, prime rib, or oven roasted turkey. Delicious hot favorites include Seafood Newburg, tri-colored tortellini with sun dried tomato and pesto sauce or farfalle with wild mushrooms, spinach, and roasted pepper sauce, pan-seared salmon with fresh dill sauce, grilled chicken topped with fennel garlic reduction sauce, and vegetable du Jour.
Appetizers and salad offerings include gazpacho salad, California Sushi Roll, Asian Noodle Salad, Russian Potato Salad, Caesar Salad, and fresh sliced fruit, as well as grilled seasonal vegetables infused with extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs.
Of course the menu includes an extensive breakfast station featuring Challah French Toast, waffles, roasted potatoes, bacon, and sausage, danish, muffins, croissants, bagels and assorted breads. The omelets are made to order with fresh cut vegetables.
Of course every great meal needs a great ending and the Sunday Brunch Buffet is no exception! Enjoy domestic and imported cheeses and an array of assorted desserts including crepes the French envy (oh, how I recall my days in Paris just taking one bite of that crepe!)! Tea, coffee, decaf, cappuccino, espresso and fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice are the perfect accompaniment!
Brunch is offered weekly at $46.95 per person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are suggested and can be made by calling 215.925.0000.
