  • Love pretty much everything on the menulollipop tree is crazy for dessert! -Dina Manzo, Real Housewives of NJ
  • How do I know youre passing off that H&M dress as couture? Because I was sipping an iced tea at this across-the-street caf, watching you sneak out of the store.
  • On The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Scott Conant is a kid again with the Cheesecake Lollipop Tree, complete with raspberries and bubblegum whipped cream, at David Burke Townhouse. Find more tips at FN Local
  • This is experimental cuisine at its finest. Try the sea scallops benedict and the sumptuous lobster steakand delight in food thats pushing all kinds of limits
  • The pretzel-crusted crabcake is addicting.
  • Possibly one of the best brunches in the city, the lobster scrambled eggs are an absolute must!
  • Pretzel crusted crab cake is amazing!
  • lollipop cheesecake thing really is pretty darn good, esp w/ a group
  • Try the cheesecake lollipop.
  • The pretzel-crusted crabcake and the cheesecake lollipop tree were both amazing.
  • Really great tasting food, really horrible service. Staff took forever to initially come over and we waited forever in between courses. Staff completely avoids eye contact.
  • The prix fixe brunch is a really good deal but it's a lot of food. Go HUNGRY. The pretzel crusted crab cake and steak and eggs are two of the best items on the menu.
  • Amazing popover bread served in mini copper pots, a very nice touch!
  • The braised short ribs with homemade cavatelli with mushrooms was so unbelievably delicious. The ribeye and bone marrow mashed potatoes that my boyfriend had was also mouthwatering.
  • The dishes here are truly unique and provide a very memorable experience. We recommend the pretzel crusted crab cake and the cheesecake lollipop tree. Yes, this is heaven.
  • Steak and egg brunch is excellently prepared.
  • Their wait staff is pretty aggressive. Not even 5 minutes after we sat down 3 different people had come over and asked to take our drink order. Prix fixe brunch is pretty good though.
  • mussels have hidden israeli couscous. yum.
  • This place has its herbal menu items covered; Rosemary bread is a must try, and the Sage ice cream is more than surprisingly delicious (even if you typically arent a fan of these types of ingredients)
  • No matter what you have as your main course, make sure to start with the parfait of tuna and salmon tartare.
