Taste Restaurant

I heard that taste has the eggiest french toast. But I also heard about Penelopes. Does anyone know which is better. I will be back in March and can go to both as well as the Flea Market cafe. But I like the eggier french toast that NY is famous for. Any ideas on this. Thanks

  1. I've never been to Penelope's but just had brunch at Taste and wouldn't recommend it as a destination. We had egg's benedict and cheese blintz' respectively both of which were fine but on the mediocre side (the applesauce with the blintz's was homemade and good). The salad buffet was uninspiring and the service was nice but slow. It took me 10 minutes of trying to make eye contact to get my water refilled. The flower arrangements were fresh and beautiful.

    1. Eli Zabar's " Taste" is know for buttery challah eggy french toast. And that is what I am longing for there. I am a French toast fanatic and NY is the bestest.
