Biltmore Brunch: By the Numbers
The Biltmore Hotel’s Sunday brunch, generally acknowledged as among the very finest in town, is now, according to press materials, “expanded” and “enhanced.” As far as we can tell, the main difference is a finer fizz, as each week a different champagne from one of France’s top producers is poured. DId you know that a typical flute glass of champagne contains more than three billion bubbles? Ha! Don’t be so gullible -- I just made that up. But I’m pretty sure these numbers are real:
