NYC Brunch...

I'm a succor for Saturday brunch, and this city is full of great place, so I hear. I most always order the Eggs Benedict unless there is a strong recommendation to try something else particular to the restaurant.  I've collected a list in my phone of various places I've heard people say they love. I was pretty food-adverse when I was pregnant; the oxymoron to that is that I gained 70lbs. But I've had no trouble rediscovering my appetite and enjoying good eating since. Bon appetit! 

Clinton St. Baking - (Lower East Side// Famous for Pancakes)
Back Forty - (LES//Southern style eating)
Beauty & Essex - (LES//shared style eating)
Freemans - (LES//hip atmosphere)
Jane - (Soho//traditional American)
Balthazaar - (Soho//well-know brunch)
Blue Ribbon Bakery (Soho//Great bread)
Shortys 32 - (Soho//quaint)
Spotted Pig - (Village)
Elephant & Castle - (Village//Eggs Benedict on french toast)
Bobo - (W. Village//Upstairs seating feels southern)
Red Rooster - (Harlem)
Landmarc - (UWS//Time Warner building overlooking Columbus Circle)
Sarabetheh's - (UWS)
Popover Cafe - (UWS)
Ditch Plains - (UWS)
Helmsley Park Lane - (Uptown//beautiful view of park)
Normas - (Upper Midtown//must do)
Eataly - (Chelsea)
Cookshop - (Chelsea//traditional)
Paradou - (Meatpacking)
Friend of Farmer - (Gramercy//Country style)

Any more recommendations?

Last week we ventured out with the boys to Landmarc. It's unusual how much space they have to accommodate a double stroller. Most places can't do so.

Friend of a Farmer is so yummy. Cutest atmosphere too. I'm coming to NYC next month, excited to try some of these places, thanks!

You should add Good (in West Village - get the lemon ricotta pancakes) and Extra Virgin (banana french toast).
