Last weekend I traveled to New York City and of course had to find a good spot for brunch on my short stay. Located on West Houston Street was a bustling restaurant, Jane. With great reviews on Yelp! and a 45 minute wait, it was a definitely something to check out.
Once we were sat, a server welcomed us with warm bread accompanied with strawberry butter. A round of mimosas and were ready to order our appetizer, the pastry basket. The basket included an everything muffin, a glazed donut, chocolate bread, and a cinnamon roll. Simple, yet delicious and filling for a party of 4.
My friends and I ordered our entrees and they turned out better than imagined. I chose the Farm House Popover; scrambled eggs, smoked ham, gruyere, caramelized onions, stuffed inside a warm croissant. My two friends ordered the special, Smoked Salmon Benedict; eggs benedict, smoked salmon, english muffin, rosemary home fries. My other friend chose the Fried Chicken & Waffles; fried chicken, belgian waffle, sunny-up eggs, and black-pepper maple butter.
The service was great and the food was comforting and savory. It was definitely worth the wait and a must-visit brunch spot in NYC.
Until next time,
