‘Art of Brunch’ at  MoveNPick Hotel

We have realized having a leisurely meal on a lazy weekend with little ones is a tough prospect and only a handful of spots keep kids in mind. Just because you have pint-sized hero’s doesn’t mean you have to skip Brunching up. We scouted the city to bring you our favorite brunch pad that makes dining with kids worthwhile.

Friday ‘Art of Brunch’, at Fountain restaurant, MoveNPick Hotel is our definitive pick to please the whole clan. My kids and the entire family has become fans of this space. Brunch here is Buffet style and designed by creative chefs accompanied by a unique performance from a talented pianist.  The menu is expansive with everything from a tempting selection of international delicacies, complemented with an extensive à la carte menu, live street food cooking station with an Asian twist, featuring a dedicated section for mussels and prawns, and a wide selection of deliciously crafted sweets and bites. Our favorite pick was grilled seafood platter, selection of cheese, Tiramisu, Creme Brûlée and the warm apple crumble.  The only disappointment was the steak, which i thought could do with some juices oozing out. My kids loved everything from the nuggets, live cotton candy station to the entertainment, which they could never get enough of.

There are lots to love about this place but the best news is that adults get to choose from a variety of options while the little crew get to feast on kid-approved creations like Mini Burgers, Fish fingers, Chicken nuggets, Mac and Cheese Rainbow cupcakes and parent approved salad and fruits, at a separate section named ‘Kids Paradise’. At this dedicated kids enclave, they cater to your tots with entertainment that include jumpy castle, Cartoon screening, Play stations, painting etc. There is staff dedicated to watching the kids, so you can sip your cocktails and have uninterrupted conversation. The food here absolutely measures up to the entertainment and service provided. Finally we have a fabulous spot to brunch where staff do not give you the evil eye if you show up with mini munchkins. Big Thumbs up all round!
