Hayes Mansion

For an over-the-top, special-occasion dining experience the Hayes Mansion in San Jose is the place. Itís not cheap at $40 per person, but the Sunday brunch at the historic Dolce Hayes Mansion has to be seen to be believed. If Thanksgiving were served at breakfast, this is what it would look like: the usual breakfast staples of eggs, potatoes, bacon and sausage arrayed alongside hand-carved prime rib, Alaskan king crab, raw oysters, mussels and sweet peeled prawns. Did I mention the bottomless breakfast mimosas?

Hayes Mansion, 200 Edenvale Ave., San Jose, CA 95136; 408.226.3200; Sun 10am-3pm, Tue-Sat 5-9pm.
