A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

We like to go to Foxwoods to meet up with friend’s of ours who live in CT. Usually, we end up at David Burke’s on Sunday for brunch. Brunch runs from 11am-3:30pm and you order off the menu. (see website for more information http://www.davidburkeprime.com/menu.html).

This last time, we changed it up and went to Alta Strada for brunch. You may know the restaurant from its other Wellesley location. Alta Strada offers a brunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-2pm (David Burke’s is only open for brunch on Sunday). It’s located inside the MGM Grand Hotel and has tons of seating.

The buffet was located at the front, looking out onto the casino floor. I was surprised that there weren’t more Italian offerings-pastas etc. (there were only a few) There were breakfast baked goods (muffins, cookies etc) as well as the usual brunch suspects, eggs, bacon and potatoes.

Just a sampling of what they had to offer….shown above is banana bread, eggplant parm. and marinated mushrooms. The food was brought out in small quantities so it didn’t get too cold and the quality was pretty decent for a buffet. While the food was good, I would put my money on David Burke’s for brunch if you have the chance. The regular menu at Alta Strada is much better than their buffet.
