  • great for a morning meeting obvs. bring something to read, get there earlier than your party and snag one of the half-circle booths against the back wall (my spot!). ginger citrus tea. decompress.

  • The best everyday restaurant in NYC. Period.
  • Reservations might be needed. Escargot was nice.

  • From what I gather, one of the last places east of Broadway still serving bernaise sauce w/ their steak frites. Also one of the few spots I've found that stocks Bruichladdich (scotch). Get both.
  • Keith McNally's French bistro is a New York classic, packed and lively from breakfast until far into the night. It's pricey, but reliable; Balthazar may age but its standards haven't fallen.
  • We love seasonal sweets like the spicy-crusted linzer tart; but all year, you'll find one of the best coconut cakes in NYC; extra-buttery scones; and mini vanilla, caramel, or chocolate profiteroles.
  • The legend in the flesh. Mobbed with tourists during the day, but still cool for late-late. Banana donuts from bakery next door worth killing for. [BlackBook]
  • Balthazar is the best French bistro in the city. Amazing hanger steak and fries. -Ash Fulk, Top Chef
  • Get an almond croissant and sit on one of the benches out front. Eat it as you watch the tourists go by.
  • Try the new banana-pecan cake doughnut!!!!! YUM
  • Best Nut-Topped Doughnut: Banana-Pecan Cake doughnut. The banana element is subtle but present; between the sweet, delicate crumbs and the toasty chopped pecans, it's an incredibly tasty specimen.
