Brunch at Thalia's

  • w

Four of us had brunch at Thalia's this past Sunday. It is certainly a nice room. Bustling - big city. Black shirt waiters. Decent service. (had to ask for coffee refill). But I thought the food was just a cut above ordinary and for the price not worth the price for parking. My eggs benedict was good. Perfectly cooked but a little on the luke warm side. Ordinary sausage links on the side.
My wife had the crab/asparagus omelet. It was skimpy on the crab but tasty.
The lobster benedict was the best of the table. Good size pieces of lobster.
After hearing Rachael Ray go on about the best place in Manhattan for brunch, I thought it would nock my socks off. Maybe she just like the cmplimentary bloody mary or mimosa.

  1. I went to Thalia for lunch last winter and found it totally mediocre. Just a tip: don't trust any of Rachel Ray's restaurant recommendations.

      i'll chime in on dinner - mediocre is somewhat kind. 2 of us had to send fish dishes back - both wildly overcooked.

      how can little miss $40 a day afford anything at thalia anyway?

        I would totally agree....was in the city 3 weeks ago and went to Thalia for dinner. It was good....but just good. I certainly would not rush back to eat there anytime soon.

    2. I'm with you on Thalia-- we've found it to be middling, at best.



      1. I guess I should have checked here first. My bad.

        1. their take-out is pretty good. good sandwiches, salads, and soups.

            Yes, when I worked night shifts at Worldwide Plaza I used to get their 1/2 price closeouts at 7PM. When I worked days I was addicted to their mini-muffins. I've never eaten at the restaurant, however.
