- Snap a photo of a bird in Bryant Park, then check-in on Foursquare to receive a FREE dessert (otherwise $9.50)!
Food: When you sit down, you are greeted with a large bread basket with fresh rolls. Note: the rolls that look like they have blueberries or raisins are actually filled with olives (ew for me)! But the plain rolls are divine.
- Classic Eggs Benedict - With Canadian bacon, chive hollandaise sauce and roasted fingerling potatoes. Overall very good, liked the thinly sliced meat that was used. Also, the potatoes were nicely seasoned and very tasty.
- Mushroom & Cheese Omelet - Shitake mushroom & cheddar cheese omelet with a side of grilled portobello mushrooms and roasted peppers. This omelet had a wonderful taste, but as you can see in the photo below, the mushrooms and cheese were dropped on one side of the omelet, so the majority of the omelet was plain egg. I always prefer ingredients to be mixed in with the eggs, but if they aren't, they should at least be even throughout the dish.
Atmosphere: You can't beat the backdrop of Bryant Park, especially if you are in the outdoor patio garden or rooftop garden. (Reservations recommended if you want to eat in the dining room). Service was good, the wait staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall a good experience, but unless you take advantage of the free dessert (Foursquare special), I think the value doesn't quite match up to the $19 price of the entrees.
