aybe we can’t all afford the kind of decadent #brunches like the opulent concoction of succulent milk-fed lamb and cucumber yogurt infused with Krug Grande Cuvée champagne – decorated with an edible gold leaf garnish by Chef Andy Bates (which has a hefty price tag of £750 — $1175USD!!) but I’m guessing there are some pretty lavish (affordable) #brunches out there and it’s my mission to find them. And find a way to do it WITHOUT selling both kidneys.
So here are 3 I found that are indulgent brunches spanning the globe in order of most expensive to somewhat doable:
1. Lily & Bloom’s
Hang on to your hats, this is not a brunch for those hoping to save a little money. This is an overindulgent (and hopefully worth it) brunch inspired by, you guessed it, world cuisine. Located in the heart of Hong Kong inside the Hotel Lfk, Lily & Bloom’s promises to give your hunger a rave-worthy experience. (And if you’ve been there, PLEASE send us a note. We’d love to share our readers experiences.)
LILY & BLOOM draw their inspiration from the physical streetscapes and downtown street life that emerged in great cities near the turn of the 20th century. Beginning in Paris and migrating to London, New York, San Francisco, and Shanghai, the years of 1890-1930 marked the beginning of not just the modern city, but the way we now eat and drink.
COST | $295 Adults + $125 Children 4-11
BRUNCH | Freshly shucked oysters, omelet station with bone marrow, truffles, Free Flow Bellinis + Bloody Mary’s

Champagne and Caviar. Yes, please! So, in saying this we all know no one is walking away with a brunch of this caliber for less than $100 per person. And you’d be right. With a prix fixe menu ranging from 3-10 courses, a happy craving may be remedied in this NY stop. The kicker? You can also BUY that scrumotious caviar inside their on-site store.
COST | $95
BRUNCH | Three courses, featuring decadent ingredients like Shigoku oysters and foie gras.
*NOTE: You can order up to 10 Courses to the tune of $235 per person
