Question Palo vs. Remy brunch on the Fantasy?

Can anyone tell me the difference between the two for brunch? TIA.

Well, firstly the price, Palo - $20.00 per person; Remy - $50.00 per person (plus $25.00 for the wine pairings).

Palo is a buffet service with some ordered items (pizza, chicken parmesan, several varieties of eggs benedict). Remy is a table service with set courses, AFAIK.

A price difference...$20 for Palo and $50 for Remy. Remy does not offer a wine pairing at brunch, but they do have a champagne pairing for $25. That's an excellent price for the fine champagnes they serve (3 IIRC).

Dress code is the same at both for brunch (dress pants and shirt; dress or pantsuit).

We had both at least once within the last 6 months. Palo has always been quite an enjoyable, informal brunch setting. You serve yourself from a buffet, with quite a variety of salads, cheeses, seafood, meats, etc. You can also order from a selection of about 15 different hot dishes, including breakfast (egg) dishes or lunch (pasta, pizza) dishes. A large selection of deserts buffet style.

Remy is very, very different. It is not a meal, it is an experience. You begin as a group meeting with the chef in a small room near the entrance, who explains the fixed menu while you sip on champagne and enjoy pata negra while the chef shows you the machine they use to slice it. Then you are individually escorted to your tables by servers who know who you are ahead of time, greet you by name, and take you to your table. The five courses (plus dessert) are then served over the next 90 minutes or so. Elegant dishes, but this experience is definitely for foodies, I dare say gourmets (for example, Gnocchi Chili, Lobster Cannelloni with caviar). It is quite different from the evening meal, where you have a selection of dishes from which to choose, most of which are familiar foods in elegant preparation and presentation.

If a high end dining experience is your cup of tea, Remy will provide one of the finest evening or bunch meals you will experience. If not, but you want to have an upscale, quiet (well, except for the basketball court on the roof) and relaxed brunch, Palo is perfect.

Search google for "remy brunch review" for detailed menus and pictures.

Thank you both for the information. I am a foodie but dh is not. I know a Remy dinner is out of the question but I just learned today that they also do brunch. I was trying to gage if that would be something he could put up with. An hour and a half is a bit much to ask of him, but the whole once-in-a-lifetimeness might be made to work its' magic on him.

A girl can dream, and if it is this girl it is going to be about food.
