Bonwit Inn

We seem to find ourselves at the Bonwit Inn once a year, on Father's Day.  Probably not the best day to evaluate their weekly Sunday brunch, but nevertheless....

It's an all-you-can-eat buffet brunch.     The salad selections, the omelet station and the carving station are in the large dining room, the breads and desserts are in an area just off the lobby, and the serve-yourself hot dishes are in the passageway that connects the dining room to the lobby.  (There is a second  dining room on the other side of the lobby, but I do not know if any food is laid out in that room, we've never been seated there.)

for the most part, the food is laid out attractively.  Although the desserts are fine by the lobby, I think the bread items should be closer to the salad bar.  And the area here the serve-yourself items was located tends to be very crowded -- our table was located in this area, and at times it was difficult to maneuver back to our table.

The reason we keep coming back here for brunch, of course, is the food.  The salad bar contained fresh fruit, several prepared salads, cheese, peel and eat shrimp, and two different salmon dishes.  Breakfast items included omelets, waffles scrambled eggs ,eggs benedict,  bacon, sausage and potatoes.  Lunch items included chicken francaise, eggplant rollatini and calamari, penne a la vodka.   Desserts included cookies, pastries and crème brulee. 

Trays were kept full and at the proper temperature.  Service was friendly and efficient.   We loved the complimentary mimosas.

It's a very nice brunch, lots of choices, and everything tasted good.  It's why we keep coming back.
