Our friends Jen and Gary wanted to go to the Whitney Museum and then have lunch at Untitled, the restaurant located on the first floor of the museum (art without a title is named "untitled"). I admit that I was not sure what to expect there, thinking that the food would probably be overpriced and subpar. I was wrong! At Untitled, Executive Chef Suzanne Cupps crafted a small contemporary American menu perfectly executed and served in a modern dining room with lots of light thanks to the floor to ceiling windows. And if you are curious like me, you can even observe the ballet happening in the open kitchen.
Here is what we had:
Bread basket with butter (not sure what kind of bread it was, probably with cereal, but it was delicious and earthy):
Burger for me, made on a soft brioche roll, cheddar cheese and crispy onions. It was fantastic: juicy, very flavorful, I did not even need to add any ketchup on top of it. It came with roasted potatoes, aioli and another sauce that I cannot recall...
Jodi got the soft scrambled eggs served with cloumage cheese and grilled bread (she asked for it without the scallions). These were some of the best scrambled eggs I ever had: soft and very creamy.
Last, we were ready to get the check when Jen remembered that they serve a very good cookie. So we ended up with cookie and milk. And what a cookie! Chewy, very chocolatey with big blobs of chocolate and delightfully salty in some parts, it is on top of my list.
They also propose cocktails and beers, but I went for their spiced pear (quite good) and an espresso. Jodi went for a tea.
Overall, we had a great brunch at Untitled: although a bit pricey, they serve a delicious brunch in a nice atmosphere. But if you go, I recommend the burger and the cookie: that will do it!
Enjoy (I did)!
