Family friends from D.C. were staying at the Ritz-Carlton in White Plains during Thanksgiving week, so we made plans to meet over mid-morning breakfast. They serve it in The Lobby Lounge, just down the hall from BLT Steak. It is an airy, bright, well-appointed room with well-spaced tables and fireplace. On weekends they offer a multi-course breakfast buffet with omelet station along with other options. A couple of us went for the a la carte breakfast/brunch menu. My friend ordered their classic Eggs Benedict, with truffle, tomato, scallion, sautéed spinach, Canadian bacon and fresh-made Hollandaise. She offered a little taste; I was always smitten by fresh Hollandaise. This eggs Benedict did not disappoint. I went for what they called a Renaissance Square breakfast Bowl, a wonderful mixture of scrambled eggs, pepper jack cheese, kale, chorizo, jalapeno corn salsa, avocado and red bliss potatoes. It was herbal and delicious! I spooned it out heartily. We had a platter of fresh breads, croissants and pastries on the side, and surrounded the meal with lots of fresh coffee and chatter.
The wait staff was very accommodating, too, especially to the child at the table.
