After our first night in NYC we were hunting for a nearby restaurant for a hearty breakfast. We were staying at the Intercontinental Hotel Barclay (48th and Lexington) and Raffles was right on the corner. We got there about 9:00 and although the restaurant was jam packed, we were seated right away. The service was friendly and the manager visited our table a couple times and offered sight seeing tips. He was great. Breakfast was delicious and fast. I had a breakfast sandwich that hit the spot; my family had a nice cheese omelet and french toast. All of it was excellent, although a bit pricey compared to restaurants back home. I would definitely go back.
