Brunch at The Standard Grill in NYC, New York

The meatpacking district is an interesting neighborhood, filled with renown restaurants, some of them with a crowd a bit pretentious and obnoxious, making it a great area for people watching. This is where also people go to see celebrities...We ended up there for brunch after a friend's recommendation. It was for sure packed and the service suffered a little bit of it, although it was very courteous and tried to satisfy any demand we had.

Each table had some cute kissing dogs that were in fact salt and pepper, that you could purchase (I am sure some people did!).

So we started off with the Bibb Royale:
It was bibb lettuce with a white-wine dijon vinaigrette and chives. This is my favorite lettuce and it was nicely made and delicately presented.

Then, they had a soup of the day: a chilled carrot soup.

It was the first time I had a carrot soup and to serve it chilled was perfect as it was a hot day: very refreshing!

Then, we shared some homemade cinnamon sugar donuts:
They were fantastic! Not greasy, airy with a scrumptious cinnamon sugar coating.

Following the donuts coma, Jodi got her scrambled eggs that she ordered:
They definitely know how to make scrambled eggs: fluffy and very moist! If it was not for Jodi, I would have eaten her plate!!!

On my side, I got the Belgian waffle with buttered rum, walnuts and bananas:
That was a great waffle: crispy outside and chewy at the same time. You could definitely taste the rum also...

For sure we had a sugar coma after leaving The Standard Grill! It was one of the best brunches I had in NYC!

Enjoy (I did)!
