Even after enjoying a huge meal at La Luce, I woke up with a grumbling stomach the next morning. Luckily, my first meal of the day was a hearty one. I enjoyed a wonderful steak and eggs breakfast at Bull & Bear in the Waldorf Astoria.
The Waldorf Astoria was gorgeous inside!
I absolutely loved the color palette of the lobby parlors.
And the peacock rug!! I want one in my apartment!
As soon as our group arrived at the Waldorf Astoria, Keith Salwoski, Director of Public Relations, greeted us and invited us into Bull & Bear for breakfast.
Before the meal began, the Chef de Cuisine, David Sears, introduced himself and provided us with a brief overview of what was in store for breakfast.
Handsome devil, isn’t he?
We started with fresh squeezed juice.
We had the choice of Carrot-Ginger, Apple-Pear, and Watermelon juices. I tried the Carrot-Ginger and Apple-Pear flavors and loved them both. The Carrot-Ginger had a slightly spicy kick and the Apple-Pear was light and refreshing.
We also enjoyed an amazing selection of pastries, including house-made Monkey Bread, truffle scones, and croissants.
The Honey Truffle Butter that accompanied the pastries totally knocked my socks off.
I spooned a thick layer on each of the pastries that I tried.
I also drank a cup of coffee with breakfast.
The “main course” of the meal was a 28-day dry-aged, USDA certified, Angus prime beef Tomahawk Ribeye steak. Sounds intense, doesn’t it?
Well, it was! Look at this bad boy!!
Along with the steak, I had some eggs.
And, on the side, I had a stack of mini potato pancakes.
They were so soft and fluffy, but full of flavor. Delish!
We finished the meal with fresh fruit, mango sorbet, and lemon sponge cake with a house-made yogurt.
It was the perfect way to end such a heavy meal.
My goodness was this meal impressive! I truly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Obviously, the food tasted amazing, but the staff at the Bull & Bear truly enhanced the dining experience. Everyone was incredibly friendly and accommodating.
