    Popover Cafe on Amsterdam in, I think, the high 70s. Not life-changing, but comfortable, and the popovers with strawberry butter are delicious.

        Second good enough to eat. SO lives right around the corner and we've never been on a weekend because the line is usually out of control by 10 a.m., it's nice for a weekday breakfast.

          Norma's in the Parker Meridien. Does the location qualify geographically?

            I've always found Norma's to have poorly executed dishes (overcooked or too sweet), have poor service, weak coffee, and overall, it's overpriced for what you get.

        I definitely second Telepan and Good Enough to Eat.
