Order Up: The Circle at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach

View a slideshow of The Circle at the Breakers Resort here.

This week's review in Dish, we visit the 25-year celebrated Sunday brunch at The Circle at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach.
Researching where to find worthy brunch spots for Mother's Day (see our complete list here), gave us excuse to splurge at the historic Breakers Hotel. The brunch is pricey, $90 per person, but it arguably has the largest selection of superbly prepared food items within a 100-mile radius. The experience of dining in this extravagant hotel, complete with Renaissance images painted on the vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean, makes it all worthwhile.

Here's an excerpt from our review.

At the entrance to the restaurant, two poised hostesses greeted us like

characters from a Disney movie. "Welcome to the Circle," they chirped.

Since we were an hour early for our 2 p.m. reservation, one hostess

escorted us to the Tapestry Bar for bloody marys and champagne -- all

complimentary with our meal. This was a second food-filled room! Our

path snaked past stands of domestic caviar and blini and ice tubs that

showcased stone crab claws, clams on the half-shell, and other seafood

delights. As we waited for our drinks, only an arm's length separated us

from the sushi station, where a chef sliced succulent-looking sashimi.

We contemplated sneaking a bite before being seated, but composure was

required in a place as imperial as this. Besides, we feared that the

refined blond standing nearby, crowned with a large hat and floor-length

dress, would report us for lack of decorum.
