It sounds far-fetched to call an $80-per-person brunch a
“deal,” yet we doubt you’ll come away grumbling about the cost of this
all-you-can-eat array of gourmet goodies that commands the dining room
each Sunday at the Four Seasons. Forgoing the traditional smorgasbord that
stretches from one end of the room to another, this multi-course spread is
discreetly tucked into and around corners, affording you the pleasure of
not feeling like a glutton. Focus on the raw bar, stocked with shrimp,
crab claws, and several kinds of smoked salmon, and the ceviche station,
where the Peruvian palate-teaser is made before your eyes. Wash it all
down with bottomless mimosas while gazing on the Watergate. Sunday 10:30
to 2.
