One could say that in New York brunch is a religious experience. In other cities people use their Sunday mornings to go to church, exercise or spend time with their families. But if you are in Manhattan and its Sunday morning, you will most likely find yourself at brunch. And why not? after a week of hard work and a weekend of hard partying it’s nice to get together with a few friends and discuss the events of the week over delicious breakfast food- because who really goes to brunch with plans of ordering a salad?
Brunch is one of the things I enjoy the most about this city, and my absolute favorite spot is Blue Ribbon Bakery (35 Drowning Street, New York NY 10014). Located in one of the “coolest” neighborhoods in NY (the West Village) this restaurant is decorated like a diner on the top floor, and like a country house in the bottom one. Its menu offers everything from challah bread, to eggs any style, to pancakes and waffles. My personal favorite here is the poached eggs with salmon. And the walk around the west village is a definite plus. Bon appétit!
