Last week I ventured up to NYC for the most beautiful weekend in the city I have yet to experience. Everything was blooming, the skies were gorgeous, and the temperature couldn’t be beat. Home of some of the best food in the world, I took a casual approach to the streets this time looking for some unique local spots, and some crowd favorite brunch spots. I was not disappointed! Here are my discoveries.
|Lean Mean & Green Juice was tart and refreshing|
|Every food reviewers must haves…..|
|They offered several granolas. I choose a lemon infused flavor.|
Brunch is huge in NYC. In fact, part of the reason I decided to begin my “Best in Brunch” series on this blog was because I realized what a movement it had become and how that influence had really traveled down to the South East foodie scene. Since I was in the midst of that series I requested a few Brunch dates while I was there. My first time in Brooklyn, I looked again to Yelp to find a great spot. We were not disappointed. Cafe LULUc is a French inspired bistro full of local charm. Loved the eggs florentine and quiche! Order the Sangria for a special treat and don’t miss out on the back patio. Cafe Luluc is famous for their pancakes. I didn’t order any but apparently they are to die for! I received several messages and comments on social media after we stopped here, from my friends who were locals, telling me how this spot was one of their favs. That just proves that when you go where the locals go, you can’t go wrong!
On my last day we did some walking and on the way back we were famished. Once again Yelp provided us a lovely spot for brunch. Loved Spoon & Tbsp’s large portions and hearty fare. Made from scratch biscuits melt in your mouth and large cut slices of bacon satiated our appetites. It was the perfect meal to sustain me for the flight home. The decor was sparse, but had a lovely anthropologie feel to it.
After all that food, you can now understand why I might want to follow it up with a juice cleanse. Stay tuned for my full review and more on my trip to NYC!
