The only thing better than a beachside brunch during Basel is a nighttime beachside brunch during Basel. Who doesn't want eggs benedict for dinner?
This weekend, the DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz-Carlton will host a Day and Night brunch party, an event originally made famous in the Hamptons.
The best part? You don't have to worry about being hungover for work on Monday. These shenanigans take place on a Saturday, so you'll have all day Sunday to recover.
Dual Groupe founders Daniel and Derek Koch launched the first Day and Night brunch in 2008. The events turn traditional brunches into bona fide parties, including world-famous DJs, dancers draped in feathers, champagne showers, and other things that sound like they're straight out of a Gossip Girl episode.
Tomorrow, the Magic City will get its very first taste of the Day and Night brunch, featuring sounds by DJ Dani and a very special brunch menu. For appetizers, pick from island conch fritters with chipotle remoulade ($9); yellow tuna tartar with avocado purée, cucumber salad, jalapeño, and lime vinaigrette; carnitas sliders with guajillo puree and pickled onions; and crispy French toast bites with bourbon maple syrup.
Entrées include crab cake benedict with spicy hollandaise and roasted potatoes; huevos rancheros with refried beans, spicy salsa and queso fresco; curry spice chicken pita; sirloin burger; and smoke salmon flatbread with dill cream cheese, crispy capers, and salad. Prices range from $8 to $16 for appetizers and $18 to $21 for entrées.
