There's much to love about brunch at the Viceroy's swanky Eos: the fluffy buttermilk pancakes, the wild mushroom and ricotta frittatas, the gratis mimosas and Bloody Marys that you can refill endlessly. Brunch also nets you complimentary entrance to the hotel's 50th-floor pool party (normally $30), which launches this weekend.
The Breakfast Club Best Brunch and Swim Packages
Ah, brunch. Whether you're recovering from a hangover or holding on to the last vestiges of the weekend, you can't skip this weekly ritual. Throw in access to some of the city's best pools and beaches, and you've got a mini-vacation. Herewith, the best brunch and pool combos we've ever laid bloodshot eyes on.
The brunch buffet at Trump's Sunny Isles hotel grants you full use of the resort's grotto-style pool and private stretch of pristine beach. So after you've dined on Bourbon Street French Toast, Southern Fried Chicken, Chinese Short Ribs and had your fill of the cupcake bar, you'll be ready for a long nap on one of those cushy chaise loungers.
It's convenient that Area 31's brunch buffet shares space with the hotel's 16th-floor pool deck—you won't have to walk too far to take a dip before diving into unlimited mimosas while working your way through two buffet lines: the cold, which includes a ceviche bar and domestic caviar, and the hot, with its bevy of waffles, omelets and steak frites.
Buying lunch for two at the hotel's eco-friendly restaurant earns you a daylong free pass, whereby you get full run of the property's Deco pool, lush tropical gardens, beach chairs and umbrellas. Throw in a few organic cocktails, and it's the perfect way to show your woman you're a sensitive man who cares about the environment as well as her tan lines.
