  • The contadino is two perfectly poached (soft) eggs with sauteed seasonal vegetables. Right now its corn cherry tomatoes and jalapeos. This is the perfect breakfast
  • The breakfast at Maialono is great. Cappuccino is excellent and I alternate between the Contadino and the Currant Pecan Granola with Yogurt and Fruit
  • Get the breakfast yogurt with balsamic vinegar on it
  • Popular midday dishes include the peppered chicken on arugula ($19); marinated sea bass with asparagus on a salad ($19); and the pasta with black pepper, egg and guanciale, cured pig jowl ($15).
  • Cappuccino and Caramellato for breakfast when you need to kick it in gear
  • While mostly known for dinner, brunch is great, too. Try the sweet ricotta pancakes ($15) and the delicious pork sausages ($7).
  • The flavors are traditional Roman at Danny Meyers latest, with standout versions of bucatini allAmatriciana and trippa alla Trasteverina. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
  • This Roman restaurant in the Gramercy Park, helmed by Nick Anderer, offers one of our favorite breakfasts in the city.
  • Recommended: Salumi, fried artichokes, tripe, pastas, swordfish, deviled chicken, roast suckling pig. For dessert, revive yourself with a simple affogato: vanilla ice cream drowned in espresso.
  • Suckling pig, seriously, just simply amazing!
  • Gluten free bread. Gluten Free Fettucine. WIN!
  • Suckling pig for two very special--order in advance.
  • The best carbonara in town.
  • The Cacio e Pepe eggs at breakfast is one of the finest dishes in all the land.

  • The seasonal pastas are some of the best items on chef Nick Anderer's menu. [Eater 38 Member]
