Bottomless boozy brunch has had a rough go of it lately — there’s even a lawsuit to end it by some person who’s never known the healing powers of fluffy pancakes combined with their best girlfriend Bloody Mary.
To him, we say: If it’s good enough for the Metropolitan Opera, it’s good enough for us.
That’s right, the Met of all places will hook you up with unlimited Prosecco Bellinis during Sunday brunch at The Grand Tier Restaurant, on the second floor of 30 Lincoln Center Plaza.
The 2017-18 opera season is underway, and with it comes the restaurant’s triumphant return. Reservations are open — you no longer need a ticket to dine! — for what’s arguably the classiest bottomless boozy brunch in all of New York City.
Just look at the dining room’s soaring ceilings! The Marc Chagall masterpieces! And those custom-made Sputnik Swarovski chandeliers! It’s enough to make you burst into song, but leave that to the professionals — rising singers perform twice during brunch service.
The restaurant’s “luxury brunch experience” won’t break the bank, either. The two-course prix fixe with options like brioche French toast, wild mushroom risotto and a smoked salmon platter, including bottomless bellinis comes to $45.
All those bellinis are even going to benefit someone else, too — a portion of each receipt goes to support the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program.
Though there are no performances on Sundays, you should come back during the rest of the week for some art appreciation.
The Met’s season kicks off with performances of the classic La Boheme, a lush Chinese fable about an ice princess whose frozen heart must be thawed by a prince in Turandot, and the American premiere of the surreal drama The Exterminating Angel, about a dinner party that its guests can’t escape.
Maybe if the host served bottomless bellinis, they wouldn’t want to leave.
