A couple of weeks ago, the Hyatt Concierge team was invited for breakfast at Eldorado Barbecue Lounge. I was filled with excitement as this was the first concierge event I was going to attend and a great opportunity to gain Concierge exposure.
As we entered the lounge, we were welcomed by Jordan Keith, the General Manager, a very pleasant and polite individual. The first thing that caught my attention upon our arrival was the amazing art work and paintings on the walls. In my opinion, there is no greater way of enjoying breakfast than while surrounded by magnificent Southwestern paintings and cowboy miniature statues. Also surrounding this relaxed and delightful place were bulls with humongous horns representing the Southwestern culture that I found very intriguing.
Not only was Eldorado authentic, but their breakfast food was delicious and a great value at only $7 per plate. I ordered a B.E.L.T, which came on a brioche bun stacked with house-made maple bacon, eggs, lettuce and tomatoes and served with rostii potatoes. The other concierges ordered egg omelets served with toast as well as the classic Benny, which came with two poached eggs on a toasted English muffin with homemade bacon and rostii potatoes – and may I remind you all for $7!!! To further enjoy our meals, we drank freshly squeezed orange juice – the best that I have had -very sweet, rich and cold. All of our meals were tasty and well presented!
After my delicious and authentic experience at Eldorado, I am convinced – there is no greater way to enjoy a true Southwestern breakfast than surrounded by authentic artwork and the relaxed ambiance that makes this lounge a pleasant place to visit. The food and service were both great. For further information on other items offered on the breakfast menu as well as the dinner, wine and cocktail menu, visit their website at www.eldoradoyyc.com.
