    One of the few hole in the wall brunch spots in Soho that takes reservations. Less trendy but better food than Jack's Wife Freda. The poached eggs over polenta with panchetta are perfection!

    Recipe for the perfect brunch. Step 1: come here with a friend or three. 2: order the rosti Norwegian and the croque monsieur, with a fried egg on top. 3: splitty split your way to Swiss heaven.

    During the winter you have to make reservations in the back room behind the kitchen for a cheese fondue. Cozy room decorated with a lot of original pieces from Switzerland.

    The croque monsieur (with a fried egg, so a madame!), is divinely good: lathered with creamy bechamel and super crisp. Oh, and don't miss out on the rösti, as a side if you must.

    The burger is pretty delicious. Get it medium rare w american cheese. And if they have the escargot special, get it! You can also order the fondue even if you're not on the back room.

    In winter you want to head to the back room, but the big secret is that you can get fondue at your table in the front room, go splitty on a burger (+cheese), and have enough fondue left to share

    For a quality white, opt for the Cheverny. From France's Loire Valley, this appellation's whites are based on sauvignon blanc. While not as refined as Sancerre, they're great, refreshing whites.
