Located–where else?–atop the venerable InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco, the 19th floor Top of the Mark’s lavish Sunday brunch encompasses a caviar station, raw bar (showcasing the Bay Area’s famous Dungeness crab), and a vat of San Francisco seafood chowder. Champagne also flows, potato wedges are Cajun-spiced, and Dim Sum delivers with a diverse sampling–all just a sample of the substantial and highly evocative menu. Tops at the Top of the Mark brunch: their signature bread pudding. And for those who aren’t early risers but still fancy a panoramic view, there’s always the Top of the Mark’s cocktail cart, boasting no fewer than 100 martinis.
