The most insanely good pulled pork hash I've ever had. Every aspect of the meal was terrific. Great service, amazing food.

I took a visit to Norma's with (2) friends for breakfast having no expectations at all. The first thing that struck me were the prices. Some items were around $30 if I recall and our breakfast came to $140 between the (3). That is the only negative mind you. The food was exquisite and the portion was enormous. Probably the... More

A few of us had Brunch at Norma's. I ordered the Normalita's huevos rancheros. It was the most delicious thing I have ever had the good fortune to eat. Fresh, delicious and a huge serving. I was stuck in an awful position of being really full up but also not wanting to stop eating it. Everyone else enjoyed their food... More

by dinner time. What a delicious breakfast that was. The staff were very accommodating, even though it was a busy morning and I had no reservation, they found a table for me. Service was great and the lobster omelette was to die for. A breakfast must on NY map.

My family love this place and some of the specials like the crispy french toast is great. However this time I felt it wasn't as good as a it has been in the past. High prices, mediocre service and the quality of the food was only so so. Had to send the French toast back as it was raw in... More

Now, when paying these prices, I certainly have lofty expectations....but Norma's definitely delivered. As a group of 6, we had sweet stuff and savory stuff and everything was perfectly done and delicious. It cost us about $50-60 per person, but since that is what it would cost for a normal buffet brunch or nice lunch in NYC- the price tag... More

What a rip off!! I can't believe this place is rated so high on places to go for brunch. The place was packed with a 45 minute wait at 0900. We had made a reservation on Yelp (which gave the high review, hmmm conflict of interest?). The service was good and the servers were running but the food was EXPENSIVE... More

Didn't love the atmosphere, but loved the food. Great place for breakfast and lunch. Amazing omelet, and french press coffee. I could have tried a number of things, and love that they are honest about what the recommend as their specialties.

Staying in Midtown

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.
