Great breakfast/brunch in Times Square/midtown?
I have family visiting me from out-of-town on Saturday.
Can anyone recommend a great place to get a standard (or maybe a little bit experimental) American breakfast in the Times Square area? The bus would probably be arriving later, like 10:30 or so. So I don't want a place that stops serving breakfast food at ten a.m.
(I remember one place -- maybe Italian?-- on Eighth Avenue in the Forties that served smoked salmon with eggs. Are they still in business?)
Many thanks in advance!
You may be thinking of Pigalle, a French brasserie, on 8th Av., near 48th St.
However, smoked salmon with eggs is served at quite a few restaurants in that area. Here are three which, in my view, have better food overall than Pigalle:
Blue Fin does a really nice brunch that is surprisingly affordable (includes coffee and a mimosa) The french toast is really good!
