START WITH A HEARTY BREAKFAST
There's no such thing as a rushed toast and coffee at Ascension. Housed in one of Uptown's most recognized buildings, The Crescent, breakfast at Ascension is done leisurely and preferably over a long flat white. Power up with a trendy avocado toast packed with two poached eggs over a healthy hippie loaf or the prettiest paleo berry bowl in town that is almost too artful to eat. Instead of plain old pancakes, lap up a skillet baked orange-scented ricotta cake with mascarpone, drizzled with Grand Marnier syrup.
Before leaving The Crescent, take a peek next door at Bivins Gallery for modern art and stroll around the elegant garden walkways. Walk through Atrium courtyard to the equally iconic, Stanley Korshak, a high-end luxury emporium with unparalleled customer service.
