Millesime's Brunch Packs a (Bottomless) Punch (PHOTOS)
It may be inconspicuously tucked within the Carlton Hotel, but the French Brasserie known as Millesime has recently been packing a mighty punch at brunch--and a bottomless one at that.

The restaurant just rolled out a brand new bottomless punch brunch, where the music of resident DJ Erika spins overhead in the brassy chandelier-clad bi-level space, and diners can enjoy their choice of fall entrĂ©es and unlimited punch for $29 per person. The Cranberry and Cassis Punch is blended with vodka, fresh cranberry Juice, Creme de Cassis, lime juice, and prosecco, while the Cider Tequila Punch packs tequila, apple puree, lemon juice, a pinch of salt, powdered cinnamon, and sparkling cider into one cup--and each is served with a curly straw.
Entrees range include a braised short rib sandwich with crispy shallots, a cubed croque madame with dill fondue, a blueberry-apple-mascarpone French toast sandwich, homemade duck liver parfait, and a generous bowl of orecchiette with smoked bacon, broccolini, confit tomato, shaved parmesan, and a poached egg.
