Breakfast in NYC Tue, 05/11/04 4:48 PM (permalink)
Heading to NYC soon for 5 days and wondering if there are any "musts" for breakfast? Even though I used to live in NYC, I still want as many opinions as I can get. Who knows, maybe I will learn of a new place or better yet, head to a place I always wanted to but never got the chance. In other words, where would you go for breakfast in NYC?

    Rich, I wish i could tell you what to do. I have been in NYC several times in the last few years and I did my deal in the major hotels where they charged me mega bucks for whatever.

    I wish I could do you for what you did to me in giving the reco for Dixie Crossroads. You did goodl. I enjoyed the rockshrimp broiled and fried. Enjoyed your website.

      For me, breakfast in NY was always the best deal in town. Every coffee shop/diner has breakfast specials that are served until approx. 10 am--they usually give you your choice of juice, eggs, toast, homefries and all the coffee you can manage. You can't go wrong at any of these places.

        I happen to really like Bubby's, which is downtown in Tribeca. Since it expanded a few years ago it's become a little trendy for my taste, but still good.

          I agree with[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=433']Barney Greengrass[/url] on the Upper West Side. If you happen to be way downtown and want a stand-up meal, [url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=2158']Tony's[/url] really is something special. Midtown, [url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=283']Cupcake Cafe[/url] is always a good bet for excellent pastries (and weekend waffles). If you happen to be in Chelsea, the breakfast burrito at Kitchen Market (218 Eighth Ave, near 21st) has gotten rave reviews.

            Egg on a roll for about $1 from a street cart or a take-out deli.

              I wholeheartedly agree on the breakfast special, and would point out two favorites:

              In Midtown, I really like the Renaissance Diner (9th and 51st). The coffee is good and served in a large mug, and the french fries are truly excellent--I ask for them well-done instead of home fries. My favorite there: eggs Florentine, like eggs Benedict but with a mixture of spinach and feta in place of the Canadian Bacon.

              My favorite breakfast special anywhere in Manhattan, however, is at Little Poland, 2nd Ave between 12th and 13th. The standard breakfast (eggs, juice, toast, coffee or tea, potatoes) is $2.95, a terrific deal. But it gets better: for no additional charge, you can have kasha with onions and gravy instead of the potatoes. The onions are the highlight: soft and brown, marvelously flavorful and sweet. Then, of course, you can add meat: ham, bacon, sausage or corned beef hash raises the price to $3.95. The real indulgence though, is the kielbasa: you get a piece at least six inches long, split and grilled, highlighting its marvelouslt garlicky taste. The damage is a mere $4.50. One other point: instead of one of the regular toast choices, order the challah. For an extra $.35, you get two huge pieces of egg bread on which to spread the butter, honey, marmalade or other jam placed in the paper basket on the table. The neighborhood has numerous facilities to assist in your recovery.

                  I put a heart second in for Hilldweller's recommendations. Tony's has the best egg sandwich going. They are on vacation for the summer and will not be back at their regular spot until after Labor Day.

                    go to Johns,right near Lincoln center, a dump of a coffee shop but a great place to absorb...sort of like Durgin Park except the waitress is meaner and more sincere when she insults you(she will tell you what you want,thereby relieving you of any anxiety over choices)...good coffee and sandwiches to go.....cheap
