christmas day breakfast

  • 8

Coming to NYC for Christmas weekend and staying in mid town. Any suggestions for breakfast places that will be open? I prefer to avoid hotels. Thanks

  1. If you are looking for a good hearty breakfast but not fancy try Scotty's Diner on Lexington bet 39 and 40.

    1. Our concierge recommended The Brooklyn Diner for breakfast on Christmas Day. Menu looks great!

        I can't stand that kitschy Brooklyn Diner, but out of towners seem to love it.

          I've been there a few times with the "out of town" friends. It's kind of corny but the food is decent. Probably a great choice if you want something a bit upscale from Scotty's basic diner fare.

            Scotty's sounds fine. Just looking for some basic breakfast food. Thanks

              Some other places probably akin to Scotty's would be:
              Parisian - 7th Ave between 57 & 58 Streets
              Astro - corner of 6th Ave and 55 Street
              Tramway - corner of 2nd Ave and 60 Street

              All are basic diner/luncheonettes with standard breakfast grub at standard diner prices.

      2. How about dim sum? Most things in Chinatown will be open, though may be extra-busy.

          Yes, insanely busy. Reservations are a must for Chinatown on Christmas day!
