Cupcakes at the Ritz!?

Fodor's Travel Wire reports that The Greenhouse in the Chicago Ritz Carlton offers an $18 all-you-can-eat cupcake buffet from 9pm to 11pm on Saturdays. "Executive pastry chef Anthony Chavez avoids Duncan Hines-style confections in favor of inventive flavors like coconut tres leches, hazelnut praline, and raspberry Sacher. Those seeking to limit their sugar high can indulge in two cupcakes for $8 or four cupcakes for $10."

I expect a full report Monday morning.

Went to the Ritz Carlton Cup Cake Buffet on January 20th, and had a great time. Their hot chocolate is incredible! Great place for a date, a birthday, or pre-gaming before hitting other downtown nightspots.
