And when you see these photos, I think you'll know why- this was unlike any other brunch I've ever been to. Abundant elegance- that's the Four Seasons way! This blogger brunch was a great way for DC-area bloggers and guests to meet/chat, as well as a way for the Four Seasons to showcase the Summer menu at the Seasons restaurant (located a floor below BourbonSteak). The chefs definitely make use of what's fresh, in-season, and most of all- delicious. Their brunch consisted of a RIDICULOUS amount of options; I thought my head was going to start spinning just from reading the menu and looking around.
Believe it or not, these photos don't even cover everything that is offered- there's a hot breakfast station with sausages, potatoes, bacon, etc. Also, you can order regular breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, eggs benedict, etc. directly from the kitchen, so they are made-to-order.
But enough chit-chat, on with the photos!

The Four Seasons also gave us cute gift bags on our way out, which included fresh herbs from the hotel's garden, a Twitter logo cookie, information about the hotel breakfast menu, and a few recipes, woohoo!
You might notice a lack of desserts- well fear not, friends, there's a reason for that: there was SO much dessert, a whole ROOM of it in fact, that I decided to dedicate an entire separate post to it! As you can see, even without the desserts, there's a lot to take in (and pack into your belly, haha) at the Four Seasons Brunch. Hope you enjoyed my mini photo tour!
*Side Note: Just FYI, in case it wasn't clear from the "blogger's brunch", this event was sponsored by the Four Seasons as a way to showcase the new seasonal menu, and as a guest, I did not pay for this brunch. Ok, that's it!
