There’s nothing like a delicious breakfast full of pancakes, bacon,
French toast and omelets. Here on Roosevelt Island, we can enjoy one with the
sun shining without ever venturing too far from our Octagon apartments.
If you want to give your Octagon kitchen a rest this weekend and leave
the cooking to the experts, head to one of these eateries specializing in
breakfast, equipped with chefs who are experts with the griddle. Your only
task? Getting out the door before noon!
Le Pain Quotidien, located at 861
Lexington Ave, New York which is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a rustic-chic
cafe known for its classic light fare and organic breads which is made by hand
from only four ingredients and baked in stone-lined hearths.
When founder Alain Coumont was a young boy in Belgium, he went to his
grandmother’s house every Wednesday afternoon where she greeted him with a
small bowl of steaming hot chocolate. As a chef, he carried the memory of that
warmth to the tables of Le Pain Quotidien.
The Garden, located at 57 E 57th St, New York which
is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, serves American breakfast, lunch and
weekend brunch amid African acacia trees at the Four Seasons.
Despite years of training under New York’s premier chefs, Chef John
Johnson eschews flamboyant gestures and overwrought dishes, focusing instead on
exceptional, locally-sourced ingredients. His menus for Four Seasons deliver
health and flavor, highlighting the very best that the region’s farmers offer.
