Columbian Breakfast Manhattan?

Hi --

Visiting NYC in a couple of weeks. Last time I was there, had a wonderful brunch at a Columbian spot in Brooklyn. I have no idea what the name of the place was, or even what street it was on -- think it was in Park Slope... this time, we're staying in Manhattan... any suggestions for a good Columbian place there that serves breakfast/brunch? Thanks!

  1. If you don't want to trek to Jackson Heights you can check out El Tequilazo in Midtown (serves both Mexican and Columbian fare).

    1. I know that Chowhound isn't the place to correct spelling and grammar (if it were, my posts would get a lot of attention for my typos), but are you looking for brunch cooked by a Columbia University grad, or from the country of Colombia? There's a difference. I know you are looking for Colombian food, but the correct spelling will help so those who are looking for arepas can search for them without getting suggestions for places in Morningside Heights.

      I guess it's all sort of a moot point since I'm not aware of any good Colombian places in Manhattan, let alone one that serve breakfast. I suppose you can get a pan de bono, or arepa, at the surviving Juan Valdez Cafe, but I can't imagine that's gonna cut it. Boo.

        Mr Porkchop, I stand corrected.... Colombian food is what I'm looking for... :) ... but surely some of those Columbia grads could cook up a yummy breakfast...
