Londoner WLTM memorable breakfast
- therubyslippers Feb 25, 2007 11:16 AM
Visiting New York for the first time this weekend (2/3/4 March - excited) - can someone recommend a good breakfast place for each of Friday, Saturday and Sunday? Staying at the TriBeCa Grand - happy to travel. Thanks!
Friday, before it gets weekend crazy - Barney Greengrass on 86th and Amsterdam. Try the eggs and nova with a bialy....real New York experience.
In your immediate area:
Kitchenette on Chambers and W. Bway
Bubby's on Hudson and N. Moore
Other favorites are:
Barney Greengrass for Sturgeon and Bagel on the Upper Westside
Essa Bagel for the best bagels
Jane for a good brunch
Bouchon Bakery for brunch
Enjoy your trip!
Thanks both - maybe Barney Greengrass as you've both mentioned it. Tempted by Prune, seen some mixed reviews online - but it was highlighted in a UK food magazine 'olive' as a good place to try.
From one Londoner to another:
Upstairs at Bouley (130 West Broadway @ Duane; www.bouley.net) for Saturday or Sunday. They start serving at 11am. New American.
Blaue Gans (139 Duane Street between Church and West Broadway; www.wallse.com). Starts serving at 8am I believe. Austrian/Middle European accents.
Best options in TriBeCa, far superior to Kitchenette or Bubbys. Have taken a few visiting friends to these places and they've been highly impressed.
Mate-It don get any mo Noo Yawk than Barney Greengrass-forgive my British/Brooklyn accent. Also please try the sturgeon-cold on a toasted onion bagel with butter in addition to the salmon. Be the only Brit to try pastrami salmon as well. If you don't want to travel-have the same al fresco at russ&daughters on the lower east side across the street from prune.
Russ & Daughters is an excellent place to go to for a breakfast of delicious appetizing items. However, our British friends are probably not aware that Russ & Daughters is a food shop, not a restaurant, and so does not have any seating. Unfortunately, the weather forecast for this coming weekend will not be very conducive to al fresco dining. :-(
