“I’m heading to St Regis for a lunch buffet.”
As if part of an enchantment spell, those words elicited a couple of wows and envious coos from my friends. Such reactions are bound to ensue, given the stalwart’s five-star rating and stately grandeur. By association, all its food operations should be equally stellar, right?
Not quite, and LaBrezza at St Regis refutes my (now mistaken) notion that lavish hotels are the go-to addresses for a splendid meal. My friend Phebe —yes, spelt without the ‘o’— and I were there on a Saturday, eager to relish a lovely Italian brunch.
