Champagne Sunday Brunch in the Grand Salon at The Queen Mary in Long Beach, California


Long Beach
The Queen Mary

Grand Salon

While the era of ball-gown-and-black-tie transatlantic voyages has passed, bygones don't have to be bygones. Permanently docked in Long Beach, the legendary Queen Mary is more than just a beautifully preserved relic from the Golden Age of Travel. This unique tourist attraction is a floating hotel featuring a variety of restaurants. Originally the first-class dining room, the Grand Salon hosts a Champagne Sunday Brunch that includes more than 50 dishes from around the world. Along with the classics, temptations include Asian-style ribs and albondigas (Mexican meatball) soup. Of note is the carving station, serving prime rib with au jus and leg of lamb. Add live music, free-flowing Champagne and stunning Art Deco décor, and this is one Sunday tradition not to be missed.
