black pudding waffles @ public


Black pudding waffles with red wine poached pears and whipped foie gras butter. These are the most amazing waffles I’ve ever had. Accompanied by mimosas and black tea. Brunch today couldn’t have been any better. Currently on the menu at Public in Soho.

biscuit french toast

Thick Biscuit French Toast with Strawberries from Jacob’s Pickles in the Upper West Side.  Very Tasty, but way to much for 1 person and maybe even 2. 🙂

calle ocho




Unlimited sangria bar at Calle Ocho in the UWS!

Started my New Year’s Eve having brunch here with sangria, their delicious bread basket, plantains, and Spanish frittata on crab enchilado.Yum yum.

Reservations needed because they fill up fast as they are only open for a few hours for brunch.

cheese blintzes_sarabeth’s


Recently tried brunch at Sarabeth’s in the Upper West Side and it was spectacular. Passed by this place many times, but never took the time to stop. It is well worth several return visits. I had the cheese blintzes which were little pillows of sweet goodness topped with I want to say sour cream and apple sauce with strawberries. I fell in love with their homemade English muffins. It’s a must try. Not your ordinary Thomas’ English muffin style everyone serves! Comes with their signature preserves.

alice’s tea cup

This is the best little place ever! Alice’s Tea Cup in the Upper West Side has the best tea selection, scones, and food in general. I had the french toast for brunch (1st pic) and it was some of the best french toast I’ve ever had. For tea, had the Silver Needle Jasmine tea which was sooo aromatic and tasty. It complimented the buttermilk scone and raspberry with chocolate scone very nicely. The scones really were the best–so buttery and soft and perfect. This place really has turned the novel idea of a tea party into a great experience with delicious tea and scrumptious goodies. I saw groups with towers of scones, sandwiches, & cupcakes and other yummy things accompanied by pots of tea. Alice in Wonderland is inspiration for this little teahouse/restaurant/cafe/place. I can definitely see myself coming back here for a great cup of tea and scone or anything else on the menu. It’s so relaxing inside that you really could lose yourself in there for a few hours. It’s great. A must try. The tea party is not for little girls anymore! There were more than plenty of adults in here enjoying themselves.

sunday brunch w/ some live tunes @ moto

moto brunch music

Met up with Jeff and Laura for some absolutely delicious brunch food at Moto.  This was my first time having brunch here.  Always seem to just make it out for dinner.  (see earlier post on 4/13/09 on Moto).  This is really one of my favorite restaurants to go to.  Great atmosphere, delicious food and live music.  The music is always good there.  Really makes for a good time.  The pic above is of the guys we had the pleasure of listening to on Sunday.  I think they are the “BJJ Trio” if I remember correctly, but not 100% sure.

Food to try for brunch:  Baked Ham and Cheese Egg with Grilled bread and salad greens (yum…soo good I want more); the freshly made donuts with some cinnamon are the best;  and the Date Cake with warm toffee sauce and whipped cream (always a must get and not just a dinner dessert menu item).

That’s just what I had, everything looked great so you can’t go wrong.  Can’t decide which is better, brunch or dinner at Moto.  Love them both!!
