The story of Begue's brunch dates back to 1875 when Madam Begue virtually introduced the concept of brunch to the Crescent City. Embracing the local tradition that Madam Begue started over a century ago, the Royal Sonesta Hotel honors her memory by carrying on this custom of an extravagant mid-day feast designed to be leisurely enjoyed. For over 40 years now, nobody does Sunday brunch better than the Royal Sonesta Hotel.While the restaurant that bears Madam Begue's name is reshaped in preparation for the 'Revolution," locals and visitors can still experience the popular Begue's Champagne Brunch. Every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the Royal Sonesta Hotel's Executive Chef Peter Page carries on the historic tradition in the elegant Bienville Suite. Patrons will be pleased to find all of their favorite Begue's menu items prepared, presented and served just as the Royal Sonesta Hotel has always done. Guests can still create a customized omelet, sample fresh local seafood, build a cold plate from the lavish salad bar, enjoy only the finest of sumptuously prepared meats, and delight in an endless assortment of tempting dessert creations.
