The Met Opera Brunch Experience

Last weekend Joe and I did a staycation in Manhattan. The highlight of our weekend was having brunch at the Met Opera. 

Grand Tier [Met Opera restaurant] is located on the second floor of Lincoln Center. This restaurant serves dinner and weekend brunch. The brunch runs from 11AM-2PM, with performances at 12:15PM and 2PM. Joe and I opted for an earlier reservation and stayed through the first performance--both performances are the same. 

For brunch, the Grand Tier offers a $45 pre fixe menu and a la carte options. Joe and I went for the pre fixe menu, which includes an appetizer, entree, and endless bellinis. I went with the pineapple yogurt parfait and brioche french toast [both were amazing!]. Joe chose the soup and eggs benedict [on cornbread!]. 

We had a wonderful experience. The meal was very leisurely. Our server was fantastic and didn't rush us whatsoever. He took our order shortly after we arrived; he brought the appetizers right away and then waited on the entree until right before the performance. 

The performance was incredible. The opera has a young artist program and they select one singer and pianist to perform four songs during brunch. 

I cannot say enough great things about the Met Opera brunch at Grand Tier. It is a fun way to "see" the opera without the price tag--you can even just order a la carte options to keep it super budget friendly.

Have you been the Met Sunday Brunch?
