This place is fantastic! I went with a friend for a boozy brunch here last weekend and was impressed with the service, atmosphere and food! The menu had plenty of options making it hard to chose what to have! Breakfast food, omelettes, burgers - suiting any tastes you may have. I chose to have the french toast which comes with... More

Had the eggs benedict which was great, but the side of potatoes was to die for. Very nice surprise to the breakfast. It was on the pricey side though.

Went here for breakfast while visiting NYC, i had french toast and my sister had pancakes. Never had french toast before but damn it was delicious! It came with fresh fruits and i loved everything about it! The texture, the smell, the way it looked and it tasted like heaven! The honey latte i had with that was dreamy too!... More

nice place for lunch or a light dinner. waitstaff is very nice, though the hostesses are a little aloof ( must be actresses ). Bartender was great as well and made great drinks.

Arrived around 10:45 was not spoken to until we sat at bar and even then I had to ask are we bother you... We ordered 2 drinks and 2 salads. The salads did not even have the same items as on the menu. We paid 78.00 and walked out and they never said a word.

Certainly a place to stop, one of the best services in NY, nice environment and contemporaneous kitchen. The poached eggs amazing, sitting on the outside tables just a perfect start for a day in the big apple.

If you dont mind bad service this is a decent place for a drink with a good selection of spirits. The food was poorly executed and should not have been served. I regret not sending it back.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
