Crown Room Restaurant Review

: Sunday brunch at the Hotel del Coronado’s Crown Room is quite the event. Whimsical crown-shaped chandeliers were designed by The Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, no less, and the high-domed, sugar-pine ceiling was constructed without nails. The buffet itself is a feast for the senses, with over seven action stations with white toque-wearing sous chefs delivering a bounty of food: eggs cooked to order; pancakes fresh off the griddle; waffles with toppings like shaved coconut and pecans. The carving station features prime rib with truffle demi, legs of lamb, glazed ham and smoked turkey. A display of salts from around the globe awaits to add a little flavor to the meats. The International section showcases the tastes of Baja, New Orleans and the wine country. Enjoy short ribs in sweet potato mash or ranch-style smoky beans. There are endless fresh salads and nice vegetarian dishes as well. Dessert commands center stage with such sweet indulgences as a chocolate fountain and a candy bar for the kids. Don't skip the handcrafted Bloody Marys with horseradish cheese. We appreciate the wealth of choices, skilled execution and old-school servers.
