Brunch, like all middle children, waits silently until Sunday to attack. Get to brunch before it gets to you with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get access for one to the brunch buffet with champagne and jazz at Alexandra’s at Turf Valley Resort, located in Ellicott City (normally $28.95 for adults and $14.95 for 12 and under; children under four eat free).
On the garden level of The Hotel at Turf Valley, Alexandra’s offers up a well-rounded menu for the midmorning muncher. As you peruse the linen-laden tables, indulge in a sampling of thick hickory-smoked bacon, blintzes, waffles, a rotating seafood dish, and a multitude of fresh fruit and vegetables. The sight of hearty eggs benedict and slow-roasted prime rib coexisting in peace will draw a tear of joy from enchanted eye sockets, while the smoked salmon and diverse bakery selection is enough to make stomachs skip a beat. The omelette station equips adventurous eggs with provisions for the journey to the center of your stomach, and lunch edges in on the action with the build-your-own salad station. The brunch also includes unlimited champagne, Bloody Marys, and mimosas, unlike “linner,” which includes a Capri Sun and rush-hour traffic.
Gaze upon manicured golf greenery and absorb the jazzy sound waves of weekly performers Bobby B. and Tommy P. as you enjoy the influx of free-flowing food at Alexandra’s. This casually elegant buffet has something for the fussiest of young feeders, and a passion for family-oriented cooking is infused in every dish.
Not valid for holiday brunches.
