I am looking for a good restaurant in the soho or
village area for a father's day brunch/breakfast. I
am looking for interesting pancakes, fruit, omeletes,
bloody marys - that type of thing. Anyone have any
Capsuoto Freres on Watts @ Washington is a very nice
brunch spot. Call now for a res. if they have any room
A more relaxed and moderately priced spot is The Broome
Street Bar. on West Broadway. Great burgers, fries and
omelettes. Good Bloodys too
How about Anglers & Writers at Hudson and Leroy in the
West Village? It's usually crowded on Sundays, decent
food, home baked desserts, lots of teas. The
atmosphere is homey and it feels more like you're in
Maine than Manhattan.
Go a little farther west to Kitchenette on West
Broadway and Warren Street. Sunny country kitchen
room with splendid breakfasts - eggs, pancakes, french
toast, etc. Go as early as you can to minimize the
wait - there will be one, but it's worth it. Note:
they will push you to the back of the line if your
entire party is not present and accounted for the
whole time. A slightly fascist policy best avoided so
you don't start your meal with a bad taste in your
mouth, so to speak.
I suggest Tartine's but go early - probably around
10ish. It's a tiny place on a remote corner in the West
Village, lots of leafy greens around and quiet streets.
The apple pancake is superb and really the only
worthwhile dish although some of the tarts are nice,
too (I enjoyed the asparagus last time I was there).
