Best "Upscale" Breakfast?
My mother-in-law is in town starting next weekend, so my wife and I are taking advantage of having a full-time babysitter to do a few things we no longer have the opportunity to do very often. One of those things is going out for an "upscale" breakfast on Saturday morning.
We've done the Balthazar/Pastis thing, so are looking for something different...maybe something with a view, or in a neighborhood good for strolling afterwards. Great food is the most important factor, however.
We'd appreciate your suggestions!
Are you talking buffet or non-buffet here? Price ceiling?
I would have recommended Ouest but they only do brunch on Sundays.
Blue Ribbon Bakery would be my pick. Get there early to get a good spot on line... I think they open at 11 or 11:30. Note: the best time to go and not have to wait on the weekend is 3:30, right at the end of brunch.
You can do brunch at A Voce since they had opened up the outdoor (patio) seating in the summer! YUM!
Not exactly upscale, but at $12.99/pound, it's definitely an indulgence - City Bakery.
If you're having a late-ish breakfast, Clinton Street Baking Co. gets my vote.
