BEST SUNDAY BRUNCH (1998)

Presuming you're not more suitable for Alias 8's "I Swear I'll Never Drink Again" omelet, there's no beating the Nicollet Island Inn's ultradeluxe Sunday brunch buffet. Start off with a mimosa, ogle the towers of strawberries, smoked salmon, and exotic cheeses, get a few slices of the carved-to-order roast beef, have a fluffy omelet or a puffy waffle created just for you by a chef standing at the ready, admire the river gurgling past the greenery on the other side of the big windows. It's heavenly--and at about $20 a head, it had better be.
