New Feature!



A stunning brasserie straight off a Paris movie set, Balthazar is perennially packed with a hip and well-heeled crowd. Fortunately, breakfast is a somewhat quieter affair, as white-aproned waiters serve croissants, homemade donuts and pain au chocolat from the restaurant's superb bakery. More substantial fare includes organic eggs prepared a dozen ways as well as sour cream-hazelnut waffles, homemade granola and steel-cut oatmeal. Weekend brunch draws a who's who of media and finance industry elites for oysters and terrific Bloody Marys. TRAIN: 6 to Spring St
