If you’re looking for something to do for Super Bowl XLV that is both extravagant and healthy, consider visiting the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley for their Sunday brunch. Located in the Berkeley Hills, with sweeping views of the Bay Area, not only will you have the opportunity to enjoy the delightful ambiance, you can also take advantage of a healthy Super Bowl menu. The Meritage Restaurant, located within the luxurious hotel, has an upper hand when it comes to fresh and delicious food, and that upper hand is Executive Chef Josh Thomsen. Chef Thomsen was named “Rising Star Hotel Chef” by StarChefs for 2010, and believes food should be “fresh and seasonal”. And that’s exactly what you get.
Choose from a variety of chilled items including Shrimp, Alaskan Crab Claws, Atlantic Smoked Salmon, Bagels and Cream Cheese, as well as an assortment of locally grown salads and artisan cheeses from around the globe. That’s just a sample. Hot items offer such delectables as Roasted Sonoma Chicken, Local Pacific Fish of the Day, a Dim Sum station, and waffles made right in front of you. There’s a Farm Fresh Egg Station (which has eggbeaters for those watching their cholesterol), a Carving Action Station offering Roasted Prime Rib of Beef and Honey Glazed Virginia Ham.
With the focus on local products and the talents of Chef Thomsen, you’re sure to get your money’s worth. Offer yourself an indulgence for all the hard work you’ve done to get or stay fit. The Claremont has offered fine dining since 1916. Renowned celebrities such as Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, and Louis Armstrong have visited. This is a place where you can renew, restore, relax, all during Super Bowl XLV. Go ahead, enjoy!
