Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay
In the ways of Sunday brunch, there's the eggs benedict tier (to be satisfied at Zazie, Foreign Cinema and Mission Beach Cafe in the city) and then there's the caviar, champagne and oyster tier. If you're really gonna go for the latter, possibly the best place to do it in the Bay Area is at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay. Sundays, they roll out the ultimate in decadence at Navio, their restaurant which overlooks the bluffs of their ocean-front property (the Ritz Half-Moon Bay is the only oceanside resort in the Bay).
If this warm weather's loosening your pockets a bit, browse on over to the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay's site to splurge on what might be the ultimate NorCal luxury experience. Yes, Ritz-Carlton Club Level rates start at $535 a night, but this weekend (April 1-3), that'll land you in the driver's seat of a brand new Tesla Roadster. All Club Level guests are invited to test drive one of those electric babies along the Pacific Coast Highway this weekend -- a quintessential Northern California joy-ride.
