ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2016) - Brunch is a time for leisurely gatherings and plenty of good food, both of which can now be experienced during the new Sunday Brunch offering at Highball & Harvest, the farm-to-table restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.

Launched on September 18, 2016, Highball & Harvest's new Sunday brunch embodies many of the same features that make the restaurant a favorite among both locals and visitors to Orlando. There are the fresh-off-the-farm ingredients for starters. Sourced from area farms and the resort's own 7,000-square-foot garden, these ingredients are transformed into Southern comfort food like Smoked Pork Eggs Benedict with BBQ Hollandaise and Pecan-Smoked Bacon and Country Potatoes.

Bowing to the seasonality of the ingredients, the brunch menu will change weekly, with the exception of some perennial favorites. In addition to pastries, the omelet station and cold water oysters paired with champagne mignonette, guests can visit the full buffet to sample dishes like Burnt Rosemary Rubbed Prime Rib or the Smoked Pork Loin with Sweet Potato Puree and Bacon-Glazed Brussels Sprouts. The menu's Chopped and Chilled section showcases salads like Bourbon Marinated Fruit Salad as well as a savory kale option for waistline-minded guests. And the chef's selection of sweets is not to be missed.

True to its reputation as one of Orlando's best fine dining restaurants, Highball & Harvest includes all the extras during its Sunday brunch, too. Children have their own a la carte menu complete with chocolate-chip pancakes and steak and eggs. Grown-ups are treated to bottomless champagne and mimosas. And live entertainment creates a convivial atmosphere in which to indulge and enjoy good food and company.

Brunch is served Sundays from 12 to 2 p.m. at $58 for adults and $20 for children ages 12 and younger. Reservations are recommended.
