Good brunch, good price.

We went for a Sunday brunch and the place was packed so we had to wait at the bar (that was crowded as well) for like 30 minutes The Unlimited Bloody Marys option is the best thing. Food is pretty good, but not outstanding. The only problem, as I said before, is the crowd and the noise. Average... read more

Food is pretty good, nothing outstanding. I like low lights, but this place is so dark, you wonder if they are hiding something. Tea lights at the table do not help much. We ordered the calamari frites and it was basically deep fried calamari out of a bag. Not homemade. Greasy. The Thai sauce lacked the Thai heat. Then ordered... More

We were staying in New York City, and found this place on Yelp. We were very pleased with our experience. There was an option for Unlimited Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Bellinis- you can mix them up. Breakfast was yummy. Service was fine. We went early, and the place was very quiet. Bathrooms downstairs.

We went here recently for brunch. We ordered the HK eggs benedict and a french toast. Both were ok but not great. The potatoes with the benedict were greasy and lacked flavor. The highlight of the meal was the flavored coffee. Overall the food was fair but the bigger problems were the service and the noise. The waiter disappeared for... More

We stopped in here for Sunday Brunch. We enjoyed their bottomless mimosas. Fun atmosphere, friendly staff. Be sure to have cash because it was a cash only brunch.

Visited the restaurant for dinner on my recent stay in NYC. The restaurant was quiet with few diners. We ordered the Endive Salad Pear that came without the prosciutto so told the server and I guess the cook must have forgotten to add so a plate of the missing prosciutto was brought out to us. We had the Steak Frite... More

Had brunch here on our last day in New York. Didn't realize it was just round the corner from our hotel. As the weather was lovely on that Saturday, the glass sliding doors were opened and it created a lovely spot for people watching. Decor was minimal and white and lots of light bathed the interior which was a nice... More

We visited on spec one lunchtime. Welcomed instantly and shown to a table by friendly staff. Food good but expensive. Glass of Chardonnay did not taste like any other Chardonnay I had ever tasted- ie it was worse. Nice decor and ambience, pity about the wine.

I went on Sunday of labor day weekend with two of my girlfriends, we only had to wait about 5 minutes, than got seated outside as requested. This place was SO MUCH FUN, the unlimited Bellini's and mimosas didn't stop flowing for the 3 and a half hours we were there. The drag queens were so entertaining, and the food... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
