The Jefferson in Richmond, Virginia

The Sunday Champagne brunch at The Jefferson is a local tradition that has long been drawing loyal diners from miles around. This lavish meal is served around the mezzanine in the fully restored Rotunda lobby, an old-fashioned setting complete with marble pillars. As you make your way through the buffet, you will enjoy soothing live background music, which enhances the genteel mood. Because the chef uses seasonal, regional ingredients, new dishes are ensured on a regular basis. Among standards such as made-to-order omelets, housemade charcuterie and oysters on the half shell, you will find specialties like The Jefferson's Signature Spoonbread. If you still have room after helpings of poached shrimp and smoked beef tri tip, top it all off with a treat from the sundae station, which includes stuffed crêpes and cherries jubilee.
