Friday, May 03, 2013
Brunch at the Beechwood (Worcester)
The Beechwood Hotel brings world class hospitality to Central Massachusetts. Their award winning Sunday brunch buffet is equally top notch. Begin your breakfast with a Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, Mimosa or glass of Champagne. Then make your way to the omelet and carving stations. Order a freshly made French crepe or waffle, but make sure you leave room for dessert! Try scrumptious tortes, mousses, and mini pastries. If low-fat is your thing, choose some fresh seafood selections like peel and eat shrimp or sliced smoked salmon. There is also a tasty salad station with three chef selected salads which change each Sunday. Brunch on Monther's Day is $41.95 for adults, $16.95 for children 6-12 and children 5 and under free. Hours are 10:30am to 2pm on Sundays. www.beechwoodhotel.com
Ceres Bistro at Beechwood Inn (Worcester)
If you’re looking for the classiness of the Beechwood Hotel but prefer to bypass the carving stations and order straight from the menu, try the Ceres Bistro at the Beechwood. They serve classic dishes like omelets and buttermilk pancakes with delicious Vermont maple syrup. You can also try something different with their “Harlem” dish, which consists of 2 Belgian waffles and a southern fried chicken breast with homefries, or “Eggs Ceres” which features 2 poached eggs, an English muffin, lump crab and creamed spinach. Ceres Bistro is also offering a special 3 course Mother’s Day dinner for $39 per person. Make your reservations soon, because this place gets booked! www.ceresbistro.com
