NY 2011 - Sarabeth's Kitchen

On my second trip to New York, the food once again blew my taste buds away. Oh New York, you never disappoint. One of the most memorable meals of the trip was our brunch at Sarabeth's Kitchen. Recall that on my last trip, I had brunch at Petite Abeille, Belgian brunch restaurant. How does Sarabeth's compare?

We waited a good 30-40 minutes in line at the Central Park location, smelling the waft of horse excrement on a humid NY summer day. Lovely... But once inside, Sarabeth's was so worth the wait. The decor was a cute and refreshing light seafoam green and the room was well lit. Perfect brunch setting.

($7.50) I ordered the Four Flower Juice which is somewhat of a fruity V8 kind of drink. It's a blend of orange, pineapple, pomegranate, and the dreaded banana. But you don't even taste the banana. This was really fantastic. Like a really fresh and healthy, fancier V8.

Peach Bellini(?). A twist on the classic mimosa. These were also delicious.

($18.50) Classic Eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon. That price is really bonkers but this was really good. You can't go wrong with the classic, especially when the eggs and Hollandaise were that good.

($18.50) These are my smoked salmon eggs Benedict. They are arguably the best smoked salmon eggs Benedict I've ever had. Actually, they are the best smoked salmon ones because I usually have crab cakes eggs Benedict (more on that later).

($8.50) Sarabeth's award winning cookies. These were really underwhelming to me. I'm no expert on sweets so I'll save the critiques for a professional. All I can comment on is that from a customer and taste bud perspective, they were good but not outstanding and should be cheaper.

The ladies for brunch + Matt. Hi, Matt! In case you're reading, thanks for tuning in and thanks for taking this picture.
