Fresh Salmon at the Grand Sunday Brunch at Woodlands Inn
Summerville, SC – Expanding on its successful launch of its Grand Champagne Sunday Brunch buffet, Woodlands Inn has added an “artist’s palate” to its weekly menu. Each Sunday, a local artist takes up residence in the Dining Room during brunch and paints a Lowcountry landscape or feature. Led by noted contemporary impressionist Rick Reinert, the artists interact with guests and offer painting tips.
Set throughout Woodlands’ elegant and century-old surroundings, the grand buffet experience features a plethora of serving stations, ice carvings and Lowcountry favorites. Utilizing local produce and products, each dish is created by Woodlands’ Five Star culinary team, including a series of decadent desserts, while the ambience is complemented by live musical entertainment. And don’t worry about finding a place to park – Woodlands offers complimentary valet parking.
The $42 cost is exclusive of tax and gratuity. Reservations can be made by calling 843-308-2115. Visit www.woodlandsinn.com for more information and details on upcoming artists.
