New York Breakfast?
We are visiting New York soon (first visit...V exited) and are looking for some places that do amazing Breakfasts! Just as exited to see the city as the food! We will be based near Times Square but don't mind traveling to other areas to find some special places that have great atmosphere and tasty Breakfasts. Also during our short visit (couple of days) we're celebrating a Birthday on Sunday, should we head for Breakfast or Brunch that day?
A general reply but as it's your first visit pick a typical New York diner. I personally love bagels and lox for breakfast but all New York diner breakfasts are fantastic. Go to Balthazar for your birthday brunch.
Russ & Daughters or Murray's Bagels for a bagel and lox
Peels or Egg for a biscuit breakfast sandwich
Shopskin's for a truly bizarre, well done breakfast menu (mac and cheese pancakes!)
Prune - I second that for a weekend brunch, although you'll be waiting a while
Buttermilk Channel is in Brooklyn, but also wonderful for a weekend brunch and in a beautiful Brooklyn neighborhood
Bowery Diner is newly opened and getting some good press
Hope this helps!
