Sunday brunch at one of six Sarabeth’s locations is a quintessential NYC experience.
First opened in 1983 on the Upper East Side, Sarabeth’s “earned a warm spot in the hearts of native New Yorkers, out of town visitors and tourists from all over the world” with its full-scale, full-plate breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner options seven days a week (Sarabeth’s). Its success led to the opening of five more Sarabeth’s restaurants around the city, one of which I visited after seeing it featured on NYC Restaurant Week.
Sarabeth’s TriBeCa is an elegant synthesis between your springtime living room—glowing natural ambiance, caramel-colored sofas, light oak tabletops—and your modern kitchen—large windows, ample open space, minimal distractions.
And the best part about Sarabeth’s? The food tastes as good as the place makes you feel.
Fat & Fluffy French Toast (strawberries, powdered sugar, butter, syrup)
truly fat and fluffy; a buttery, soft, warm delight perfectly complemented with the natural sweetness of freshly-sliced strawberries
Apple-Cinnamon French Toast (powdered sugar, raisins, bananas, apple jam)
tip: skip the syrup; instead, generously smother toast with jam before topping it off with thin banana slices and chewy raisins
Extraordinary Eggs & Omelettes:
Farmer’s Omelette (leeks, ham, potato, gruyère)
heavy flavors lean towards a salty, savory side
tip: perfect with a buttered croissant and coffee
Goldie Lox (scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, cream cheese)
light and fluffy consistency; flavors not as strong
smoked salmon taste overpowered by egg/cheese flavors
tip: enjoy with a croissant slathered with orange butter marmalade
Salmon Eggs Benedict (smoked salmon, hollandaise, peppers, chives, mixed greens)
strong burst of flavors from the smoked salmon, tangy hollandaise, and sharp herbs
poached eggs were the perfect texture; runny yolks and fluffy egg whites
thick, grainy English muffin (not as chewy/buttered as most are)
Steak Sandwich (white cheddar cheese, caramelized onion, horseradish cream, spinach and leafy greens; frites)
thick but soft bread; strong, refreshing greens; tender, well-seasoned beef; rich, melted cheese
crispy, well-seasoned frites perfect with minty horseradish dressing
black coffee; cafe au lait; grapefruit juice
