DonRocks Posted July 22, 2012 Share Posted July 22, 2012 "Inspired by the grand social promenade that connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels, Peacock Alley today creates an environment in which 'to see and be seen,'" the Waldorf-Astoria website says. Well hell, that's enough for me. I was thinking of catching the Acela up there for a $17 Waldorf Salad, but there's just so much to explore on this menu that I was hoping someone could guide me through it. Shall it be breakfast, for a $12 bowl of Frosted Flakes, $16 Traditional Steel Cut Hot (!) Oatmeal with "silvered" almonds (and at that price, they'd better be), or the $28 Poached Eggs Benedict with "brekafast" potatoes? Washed down by a $9 glass of "V's" juice, or an $8 cup of "orang" pekoe, or maybe "gyptian chamomile," tea? Or perhaps brunch, with its "Benedict Station" featuring "vegetables pork loin," then maybe an "orrechiette" pasta salad, and a side of roasted breakfast potatoes with "Julianne" peppers & onions. Maybe instead I could sleep in and enjoy lunch, starting with a $22 Chilled "Pekeeytoe" Crab & "CaviarCake," moving on to a $29 Grilled Chicken Brie & "Portabella" Sandwich (can let this one slide), or the ever-fashionable $20 Panini Caprese with "buffala" mozzarella, all wrapped up with a $14 Chocolate Mousse Bar with "rasberry" coulis, or the lemon-scented "Crème Brule?" Better still, small plates featuring a $22 Peekytoe Crab Cake with "schiracha" mayo, or the $16 "Artisinal" Cheese Selection highlighted by a "Medium flavored goat’s milk cheese made from Northwestern Spain" (not in; from). You know what? Maybe I'll just stay home and mail them a business card. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
