Come March 1st the Waldorf Astoria will close its doors to the public in preparation for what’s likely to be a lengthy conversion, as the New York icon transforms from luxury hotel to a hybrid of opulent condos and hotel rooms. While we can all rest assured that the Waldorf’s stunning interiors will remain intact—from the historic ballrooms to exhibition space, dining rooms and banquet rooms—what will likely disappear for good (at least in their current form) are the lavish brunches held at Peacock Alley. As Metro NY reports, this Sunday, February 26th, will be your last opportunity to indulge in the hotel’s utterly decadent weekend offering.

Bunch at the Waldorf Astoria Peacock Alley

While the thought of devouring a buffet brunch in a city like New York may make you wince, as Metro reporter Eva Kis shares, this is not your typical hotel breakfast of stale cornflakes and unripened fruit. Some of the highlights, she enthusiastically writes, include “four caviars, silver tureens of velvety lobster bisque, blintzes nearly bursting with sweet ricotta, a raw bar with oysters shucked on demand.” There’s also “leg of lamb, whole roast pig and, presumably in case any British royalty stop by, Beef Wellington.”

For those with a sweet tooth, the tasty spread touts a chocolate fountain, a selection of 18 cakes, cookies and pastries, and made-to-order Baked Alaska.

This is all to be enjoyed amongst the elegant, gilded interiors of the restaurant, of course.

If you’re interested in partaking in this experience, the final brunch will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday with a cost of $125 a person. Be sure to make your reservation here.
