The first thing you notice upon entering The Signature Room on the 95th floor of the Hancock is the exquisite view, which is truly breathtaking. Yet almost as impressive is the brunch offerings. Make sure you go hungry—really hungry.
The buffet is adorned with crab legs, oysters, shrimp, cheeses, pastries, breads and an assortment of salads, among many other choices. There is an omelet station with made-to-order omelets of any kind. Also in the buffet area is an ice cream sundae bar where children—and adults!—can concoct any frozen confection including traditional banana splits.
I thought that was the brunch, but the buffet is only the beginning. Menus arrive to order a la carte entrées such as vanilla French toast (in a word, yum), breakfast burritos, steak and eggs, pancakes, red seared snapper and grilled pork loin, to name a few selections. And here’s the kicker: you can order as many entrees as you want. Kudos to you if you can actually eat more than one after the buffet and generous entrée portions.
If the ice cream buffet is not your dream dessert, you can devour an immense slab of red velvet cake (you’ll need a to-go box), a variety of cheesecakes and other delectable choices.
The brunch, which is truly an experience in addition to a meal, is per adult and for children under 12.
