A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being invited to the TasteArchitecture's Winter Champagne Brunch at Temple Court in Manhattan's City Hall neighborhood!  Mandeep Bedi, Founder & Creative Director of TasteArchitecture, has made it her mission to find gorgeous spaces (before they are torn down or refurbished) and use them as back drops for unforgettable meals and parties. Mandeep had her eyes set on Temple Court months ago and knew as soon as she entered the building that it would be a perfect setting for a Winter Champagne Brunch.

My only instructions that day were to dress in warm and chic attire (as it turned out my camel coat and fur collar were perfect for the chilly dining room). As I entered the building the elaborate glass ceilings, sculpted archways and delicate metal work were such a feast for the eyes  I almost  forget the decadant brunch that awaited me.  Warm winter squash crepes, artichoked benedict with truffled porcini sauce and croque madames were just a few of the beautiful dishes that were prepared. Temple Court is destined to become an Andre Balazs (owner of the Standard) Hotel,  but all the guests of that afternoon's brunch will never forget it's original glory. Thanks Mandeep!
