Best BrunchBy far my favorite brunch spot in the city for food and drinks. I got the Mac and Cheese Omelette, and my friend got the Truffle Grilled Cheese. Both were so good. And they offer $20 bottomless mimosas. I went for my birthday, and it was great with a group of 10, as well. I've also gone for dinner and had the Lobster Pot Pie. I've never been disappointed here.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything excellent, exceptEverything excellent, except for portion sizes (especially for the price). Delicious food should come in a slightly bigger portion. But no complains about the taste, ambiance and service.
We were there for brunch on Saturday, a Knicks game was on, and the atmosphere is quite cool - some people at tables enjoying cuisine, others gathered around the screen, others at the bar. It's a gem this place. Just more food next time!! :)4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch delicious food and greatSuch delicious food and great service! We came for Sunday brunch and everything we ordered was fantastic (mushroom flatbread, mac n'cheese omelet, eggs benedictowitz). Will definitely come back here again.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely amazingThe food was absolutely amazing and our server was super helpful.
