Fluffy Omelettes

When I was on vacation in the midwest recently I had the most amazing fluffy egg white veggie omelette. I had it at a diner and I saw the cook making it. He beat the egg white for a long time in a milk shake container and then poured it over the veggies and cooked it. This turned out to be the most amazing omelette. Does anyone know of any places in Manhattan (ideally above 14th) that makes these type of omelettes? I'm craving one of these...

  1. I'm not sure how they're made, but the egg-white omelettes at these two places are fluffy and delicious:

    Schiller's Liquor Bar
    Le Monde

    1. I have ordered egg white omelettes all over the city, and I have found the best one to be at Atlantic Grill in the upper east side, oddly enough!

      1. My girlfriend orders them every weekend at brunch. I can second the Schiller's recommendation and also add Clinton St. Baking Co.

        1. I eat egg white omelettes for brunch quite often but none has come out fluffy and very often it's dry or very greasy. I will definately tried some of the places mentioned. Is there one that is not so greasy? Thanks!

          1. Thanks for all of the replies. The places you mentioned are they just really good or are they truely fluffy? While I'm always looking for good omelettes, I'm specifically looking for fluffy omelettes. The place where I had one specifically asked, flat (which is a normal-style omelette) or fluffy, which was huge due to the beating of the egg whites.

            Anymore suggestions would be much appreciated!

              well, it depends on your definition of fluffy - the whites weren't beaten to peaks, if that's what you mean. but they were light and thick, definitely not dry.

                yes, I would describe the one's at Atlantic Grill as being very fluffy
