Favorite Brunch spot in Manhattan?
Looking to check out some not-so-obvious brunch spots. Ideas?
(Note, avoid the brunch at Fig & Olive in the meatpacking district at all costs --I just had a god-awful brunch there...and it does not take much to please a hung-over, semi-inebriated gent with a ravenous appetite. Feel free to peruse my blog for details).
I like to eats.
Are you looking for places that focus on traditional brunch, i.e., eggs, French toast, etc.? Or do you prefer lots of lunch style dishes as I do? Or would you like something more unusual? Any particular neighborhood? Any budgetary restrictions?
The multi-course brunch at Ouest has been a longtime favorite. Great coffee, well-composed salads, mini muffins stuffed will molten bananas, this crazy souffle roulade filled with spinach and gruyere--it is my special-occasion brunch place.
