We’re in New York City for New Year’s Eve, and were smart enough to get a hotel room around the corner from this place, in Soho. The Landmark does really cheap, tasty breakfasts; this spread cost just $25 including tip (the service was good).
French toast – which my half-French fiancÃ© tells me is known as “American breakfast” in France, and isn’t something typically eaten there – was a welcome change from pancakes, which we had for breakfast last Sunday at my father’s house. There’s also something special about sausage patties, which I prefer to links. American breakfast sausage has a slightly spicy flavour that makes it go perfectly with the sweetness of maple syrup. (Make no mistake, the sausage took a dive into my leftover syrup.)
The best thing about a breakfast like this is that it keeps you going all day long, no lunch necessary. In the cold bustle of New York in December, that’s an even bigger bonus.
