2004 Best Breakfast, Power

Café Fleuri

Before it reopened after renovations and started serving only dinner, Aujourd’hui at the Four Seasons had a seemingly unshakable hold on the title of best power breakfast. Now that honor has been decisively usurped by Café Fleuri—a sunny, cushy space at the Langham Hotel where every weekday morning the elite now meet to eat. Financiers, lawyers, politicos, and every bigwig in between file in to carve up the universe while they’re carving up their fruit-covered waffles and Maine lobster and soft scrambled eggs. Breakfast of champions, indeed.
