MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
What started as a bakery is now a brunch-focused legend—one that draws a perpetual crowd waiting for ample rewards. A little bit country and a little bit food lab, this kitchen has achieved such success that the owners now have outposts in Japan and Dubai. Here in Gotham, the space is comfy and the service, impressive. Light and lovely chicken tortilla soup sees a pile of fried tortilla strips over a hearty broth bobbing with carrots, celery and shredded chicken. But breakfast for dinner is always a treat here, especially when golden Belgian waffles are served with warm maple butter and buttermilk-brined fried chicken for a flawless union of sweet and salt. Speaking of breakfast, it's cash-only during the day but credit cards are welcome at dinnertime.
