I was looking forward to having brunch at this well known spot, I was not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was even better. I tried Norma's eggs benny, yum! The restaurant is just off of the hotels lobby and should be on everybody's list of brunch spots in NYC.

I was told Norma's was THE place for breakfast, especially as were we staying in Le Parker Meridien. I ordered the Nova Salmon Ring - it is a simple dish of scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, wholemeal toast. The eggs were like pale yellow rubber, sitting on a watery bed of sliced cucumber, surrounded by tasteless salmon slices. It was... More

Even the complimentary orange juice is great and you can drink all you want! We had omelette with vegetables and it was almost as good as farm fresh. The French toast is unlike any other. Must try the juevos rancheros...

Our friend told us this was a don't miss and she was right! Loved the bottomless fresh squeezed OJ and French press coffee. Really creative menu. Huge portions.

Norma's offers choices that include James Beard award winners. The menu is varied and is sure to please any palate. I had the potato pancakes with cranberry sauce and sweet carrot payasam. Excellent!

Initially looked at prices and did think it was a little expensive for breakfast. However upon arrival it was first class service. We were presented with a lovely smoothie initially, coffee and ice water. Perused the menu for some time as there was a lot of choice. The lovely waiter helped us decide on what to order but said anything... More

Norma's is located iin the Meridien hotel lobby and has no sign out front. It took us a couple of passes on the street to finally find it, but once we did, the breakfast was the best although pricey. The waiter provided a taste of a fruit smoothie, gratis, and my wife and I split their 5 egg omelette with... More

I looooooved this place for brunch! Best pancakes and waffles I have ever tasted. The eggs weren't fantastic, but this is not the place for eggs, with such delicious sweet dishes on the menu. The plates are very big, good for sharing. I will definitely come back when I visit New York.

I am not a breakfast eater but when traveling with friends who love breakfast, brunch is our go to meal. This brunch was over the top. I had the nova and bagel with cream cheese which I would expect to be good but the presentation was truly unusual, beautiful and the portion was enormous. My friend's french toast was so... More

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.
