Ho pranzato oggi al Norma's, memore di un magnifico brunch quando ho soggiornato presso Le Parker Meridien, a maggio del 2007. Tavoli mezzi vuoti e camerieri svogliati erano il preludio di una pesantissima omelette di chiare d'uovo, venduta come opzione light!! Che sapeva solo di burro fritto.....tenetevi alla larga, in città - ora che abito qui lo posso dire -... More

Norma's never disappoints . . . absolutely the best breakfast place that I know. The shrimp frttata, arepa and juevos rancheros are favorites. The fresh pressed coffee and freshly squeezed OJ is so good! The portions are ridiculously large so if you can't take home leftovers, then you may consider sharing a meal. Service is efficient. Yes, this is a... More

It's tough to make breakfast "gourmet" - you can only dress up eggs, bacon and toast so far. Norma's does a great job of offering their "gourmet" take on standard breakfast fare. Corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes, waffles, french toast - all are prepared with a careful hand in large portions with inventive gourmet touches. Pricey - I prefer to... More

Amazing doesn't begin to describe this place. From the fresh squeezed orange juice to the crunchy French toast, you will be savoring every sip and bite. Everything looks good on the menu and the hardest part is making a decision. Portions are pretty large so come hungry. Excellent meal!!

This was the best breakfast we've had in the city. Amazing! We chose Norma's eggs Benedict and the Florentine Benedict. Absolutely delicious! Both entrees were served with baby potatoes. The French press coffee & fresh squeezed orange juice were wonderful. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was packed. We can't wait to return to Norma's and try... More

Daughter said, "You MUST have brunch at Norma's." So we did. No reservations, so we waited in the spacious lobby for perhaps 30 minutes. Friendly wait staff. Food was a little slow coming to the table, but OMG the portions! If you go, consider splitting an entrée, seriously. Every table left by patrons who were finished with their meal had... More

Brunch at Norma's was awesome. Definitely would recommend the crunchy french toast. Make a reservation on the weekends or expect to wait at least an hour. We lucked out and got a reservation for 10 am online at 9:15 the same day. Get the fresh squeezed OJ if the price isn't too high for you!

There were four of us. Three ordered the Upstream Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and one of us (me) ordered the Nova Smoked Salmon Ring with Scrambled Eggs. Mine was perfect, the other three returned their's because the Hollandaise sauce was cold! The dishes had to be redone and this took time. The place is expensive and was thus disappointing.... More

Norma's at Le Parker Meridien Hotel is one of the best Breakfast spots in New York City. Unique to say the least. The menu is extensive, the portions large enough to split. I like to share when we all can agree on things to eat. However my favorite are the lox's. Every time I go they become creative and sometimes... More
