Sunday brunch is an institution. Sunday brunch with seafood? And steak? That’s an outing that requires good company, good vino, and great conversation. Solaire Resorts has always had a multitude of choices when looking for extraordinary meals that satiate discerning palates. Finestra Italian Steakhouse Sunday Brunch does not disappoint in this department. In fact, enjoying a brunch in the opulent dining room of this Solaire mainstay elevates the understanding of the meal that combines both breakfast and lunch for sophisticated diners.
Hot or cold
Cold seafood towers include steamed prawns, crab, snails, and mussels. Freshly shucked oysters are the star of the show and come complete with dips and sauces from classic cocktail sauce, whipped horseradish, raspberry mignonette, or lemon and lime.
Hot seafood towers include both grilled and baked items. Oysters Rockefeller, baked mussels with panko and herbed topping, lobsters thermidor, and crabcakes are accompanied by tartar sauce, horseradish dip, and lemon butter sauces.
Starting with towers both hot and cold gives time for serious brunch-goers to enjoy a drink while waiting for their small plates to make their way to their table.
Brunch and bubbly
What’s brunch without some bubbly? Beyond the extensive wine list of both red and white wine, there are bubblies, cocktails, and digestifs to choose from. Champagne and sparkling rosé, or mixed drinks like the Finestra Negroni or the Pigafetta, offer a selection of spirits for everyone.
Small plates, big choices
Enjoying a luxurious seated buffet means indulging in rich and refreshing flavors that include octopus carpaccio, foie gras, scrambled eggs with truffles, and smoked salmon. Diners can avail of Oscietra caviar should they wish to take their brunching to the next level.
Pizza, pasta, and more
Italian specialties included in the plated buffet menu are a crusty pizza and homemade pastas – rich duck ravioli, gnocchi with cheese and honey, and pappardelle tartufate.
Perhaps you would like to enjoy an affogato with a twist? This fun dessert station involves a creamy iced treat that is made on the spot with liquid nitrogen. Enjoy this Italian treat with either coffee, alcohol, or both, and top with homemade biscotti, sweet berries, chocolate, and fruity syrups.
Other desserts that sweet tooths can indulge in are the ever present Finestra Tiramisu, Coconut and Lime Semifreddo, Mango and Banana Pavlova, Pistachio Cannoli, and Pannacotta Topped with Strawberry Confit and Limoncello Syrup.
One for the road
If that’s not enough, you can wait for the candy cart to make the rounds so you can take a sweet treat home for later. Handmade chocolate, petite treats, and macarons visit each table, inviting diners to bring a little piece of Finestra home with them.
Elegant and relaxed brunches are finally back and something we can enjoy after Sunday worship with the family. Visiting Solaire Resort for any meal breaks the monotony of everyday dining. Visiting Solaire Resort for brunch, with elevated Italian flavors coupled with live music, beautiful lighting, and a breathtaking view of the water, is a wonderful way to delight the senses while relishing the last bit of the weekend. – Rappler.com
