Fantastic breakfast, with a very good choice on offer. $44 might seem like a lot of money compared to other places around, but well worth the moneyMore

Used to be it just wasn't that hard to find a fantastic breakfast in NYC. This is one town that did it right. Now, though, it's hard to find eggs, sausage,lox, bagels, bacon, french toast, etc all in one place, in midtown. By our 3rd...More
