Puttin' on the Ritz

I seldom dress up any more so when I got an invitation to the Ritz for their new holiday breakfast I jumped at the chance to dress up. It felt good after religiously living in my Nike workout gear for months on end.

The last time I was at the Ritz we found this great bar with high, white leather back chairs. It was the perfect place to catch up but you were still in the thick of the action to do the best thing to do at the Ritz…people watch. It’s almost better than the airport.

The holiday breakfast was in that same bar and the atmosphere was terrific because it was all dressed up for Christmas too.

This was not an inexpensive brunch but the superb quality of the food made it well worth the $25 price tag and if you make friends with the omelet chef, you’ll get a mega dose of your favorite recipe and wonder how you can possibly eat it all in one sitting.

And for an after-breakfast indulgence: To the Spa for a Bamboo and black sesame body indulgence…a creamy scrub with black sesame seeds (hey, don’t you eat those?), powdered bamboo and organic oils. Revealed a totally new me.

Come to think of it, I could totally get use to this puttin’ on the Ritz lifestyle!

Bon Appetit!
