In September 2013, I was visiting NYC after a midweek research conference in Boston and did some serious online research to find a tasty brunch spot near the questionable shoebox I booked through Airbnb. My travels led me to The Breslin at the Ace Hotel, a hipster haven that was remarkably quiet for a Saturday morning. There I enjoyed a bubbly housemade lemongrass and allspice tonic with lime to start, poached eggs served over curried lentils with a smooth and smoky heat, creamy yogurt, cilantro, sun-dried tomato flakes, and deep-fried garlic slices to finish. Perfect for a day of walking from art museum to art museum.
The Breslin is located at 16 West 29th Street, New York City, New York.
