No matter how easy eggs are to prepare, sometimes in NYC you’re just too tired to even look at the kitchen. So if you want something more than a deli bacon, egg, and cheese sammy for breakfast, refer to Sarah’s list for the bestest eggs this city has to offer.
[Life : List’d ] eggs, Eggs, EGGS: My favs in the N.Y.C.….(so far)
- Freemans: poached eggs with cheesy grits & roasted tomatoes
- Paprika: green eggs with polenta, tomato
- Tartine: eggs norvegienne w/hollandaise & roasted potatoes
- Jane: benedict johnny: chicken sausage, corn cakes, roasted tomato hollandaise (or benedict w/ lobster w/spinach as pictured above!)
- Spotted Pig: beef hash w/ 2 poached eggs
- Westville: Turkey hash & eggs over easy
- Little Owl: steak & eggs, texas toast, butter beans
- Barney Greengrass: lox scramble
- Prune: coddled eggs w/chicken
- Norma’s: artichoke eggs benedict
- Momofuku Ssam Bar: poached egg w/asparagus
- Blue Ribbon: Blue Benedict w/Serrano, Jarlsberg, Tomato
- Cowgirl: Country breakfast - eggs, sausage, biscuits, country gravy
- Five Points: Baked eggs w/smoked house bacon
- Clinton Street Baking Co: Breakfast sandwich - buttermilk biscuits, cheese, bacon & tomato jam.
- Morandi: oyster omelet
- Cookshop: skillet eggs with house cured bacon
- Bubby’s: gina’s huevos rancheros (if you don’t eat the sour cream pancakes)
- 7a: scrambled or sunny side up w/salad (carrot dressing!) & toast
- Balthazar: eggs en cocette, herb omelette, or eggs w/puff pastry
I know this list is far from complete. NYers…what am I missing?
The only spot I think she missed is Kitchenette in Tribeca (it’s like Bubby’s but better). I always get the “Lumberjack Breakfast” - two egg (whites) scrambled, two wheat pancakes, and two of the best turkey sausage meatballs you’ll ever lay your lips on.
Best corn in NYC is at Cafe Habana in Soho. I also highly reccommend the cafe con leche with your brunch. If you’re not in the mood for Cuban, hit up Ruby’s (an Aussie joint) a few doors down on Elizabeth street for a casual brunch.
One of my favorite things in NYC: bacon-wrapped figs from Salt. Melt in your mouth, small bites of heaven.
I’m going on a mission to find the best sea bass skewers. They’re delicious and cheap and should be on every decent menu. Period.
Bond Street Sushi in NYC is by far my favorite, but I haven’t tried enough to crown them king just yet.
Unfortunately I’ll only be able to consider restaurants in NYC, CA, and TX with my own lips, so please fill me in on what I’m missing or where I need to go.
TELL US - Where is your favorite sea bass skewer? Or maybe YOU make the best! Do you have a good recipe?
Summer days in the Park always make you remember why you put up with the chilly winters. But then you get on the subway to go downtown and the whole car reeks of BO. You realize your clothes are wet with sweat, and your feet are starting to blister. Some people love it. Me, I prefer 80 degrees with a breeze on the beach.
My view right now. So beautiful. I think I just fell in love with New York all over again.
…are really hard to photograph. Amazing view though.
I think you did a pretty good job, G. Wow!

Ellie, many thanks to you and mommy for being such gracious hosts. We’ll cuddle again soon. X
Last night in NYC began at Bond Street Sushi with these lovely ladies.
We kindly asked someone to take our picture with multiple cameras and said, “thanks so much, we’re tourists.” (hence the “city-scape” background.)
I don’t see Mary enough :-(
But when we do catch up it’s always fun. We stopped in at Bond St for to-die-for fish-on-stick-thingys and then went to Absinthe for a few drinkies.
L to R:
Let me translate. I dragged them to the Bond Street Sushi lounge for one of my favorite NYC mellow meals: $9 Large-Melt-In-Your-Mouth Sea Bass Skewers (with very small salad) + (insert your favorite roll here) + cocktail.
P.S. Teeny, we see how you’re trying to out-collar bone us all!
Final stop was Absinthe (1st Ave between 6th and 7th Streets), a new favorite spot for rose, fries that will make you cry, and the friendliest service in NYC.
So many good friends came out to catch up. I’m truly blessed to have them all in my life.
Miss y’all already :(
Last night in NYC. Having drinks with friends at Absinthe in the East Village. Even though I come back monthly, I miss seeing them dearly. I can’t decide if it makes it harder that they’re all on Twitter because I see what they’re doing/I’m missing. (P.S. The fries here are amazing!)
Yumi Kim (corner of Ludlow and Stanton) has a beautiful array of floral tops, dresses, and jumpers. Prices $75-$200. Sample sale now $50-$125.
I’m not going on a cleanse, but I am making an effort to clean up my diet and get some serious nutrients while I’m in NYC.
As I type, I’m enjoying a YOUNG LOVE green juice (spinach, cucumber, and celery). I honestly can’t remember the last green juice I had, so it’s actually refreshing. Also pictured are the blueberry spirulina smoothie and the mint chocolate chip smoothie. I’ve been looking forward to both of them for weeks now! In between each smoothie, I try to drink a bottle of water and eat fresh veggies.
Dinner tonight is at one of my favorite spots: BLT Market in the Ritz. I love Laurent Troundel’s seasonal offerings, but I usually end up getting the black cod (one of his signature dishes).

It’s like Sarah’s stomach is our key to the city! Thanks Lady.
