Asiate, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant at Mandarin Oriental, New York, offers a phenomenal brunch on the weekends. The best option is the $54 brunch tasting menu, which gives you a chance to try the range of creations that Asiate’s talented kitchen has up its sleeve. The first course is a Gourmandise Tasting, featuring specialties like the Peking duck steam bun and foie gras custard. For the second course, you get to choose among savory dishes like eggs Benedict, grilled New York steak and butternut squash risotto. For dessert, duos are prepared like the ginger snap and rum-eggnog parfait or the banana bread and chocolate mousse cake. By-the-glass sparkling, red and white wines are offered in addition to delightful cocktails like the Bella Pesca, prepared with champagne, elderflower liqueur, grapefruit and lychee juices and Chambord.
