"There are very few things this New Yorker loves as much as Sunday brunch." -Carrie, "Sex and the City"
1. Cafe Cluny
Three Jane: I'm in love with the Grapefruit Brûlée, but if you need a bit more sustenance, the Organic Three Egg Omelette with Fresh Herbs is amazing, too.
2. Extra Virgin
Three Jane: I recommend bringing a huge group and ordering everything on the menu. Really. Suggestions include the Virgin Frittata and the Oregano Roasted Chicken Sandwich.
3. Good Restaurant
Three Jane: Sit outside and enjoy the Basil Goat Cheese Egg Scramble with Toasted Sourdough and Marinated Cherry Tomatoes. I always get it with egg whites.
4. Clinton St. Baking Co. & Restaurant
Three Jane: The Banana Walnut Pancakes here spoiled me for life. Long waits for brunch though, so pop into Gesamtkunstwerk across the street while you wait & check out the latest Three Jane accessories!
5. Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen
Three Jane: Yes, I've ordered the profiteroles for breakfast here once, but most of the time, it's the Blue Benedict.
6. Essex Restaurant
Three Jane: With a $22.95 brunch special that gets you 3 Bloody Marys, Mimomas, or Screwdrivers, Essex is probably the best brunch deal in the city. Awesome for big groups.
Three Jane: Known for their bread, we recommend the Scrambled Eggs In a Puff Pastry with Wild Mushrooms and Asparagus or if you are watching your carbs, try an Egg White Omelette With Herbs.
8. Friend of a Farmer
Three Jane: Eggs are a must at this Gramercy eatery. We like the Farmers Market Omelette with Fresh Spinach, Sauteed Mushroom & Cheddar Cheese.
Three Jane: Strawberry butter & Vanilla Bean French Toast. Enough Said.
10. Norma's at Le Parker Meridien NY
Three Jane: Home to the $1,000 Omelette, come with the intent to share. The Waz-Za Waffles are definitely "wow-ing" for not only the taste but the portion size.
11. Market Table
Three Jane: I love the Parsnip & Apple Soup with Pine Nuts, Brown Butter, and Pickled Winter Radish. The specials are always great, so be sure to check those out, too!
13. The Smith
15. The Sunburnt Cow
16. The Smile
17. The Dutch
Three Jane: Home to the best Bloody Mary...EVER.
