Lafayette - sister restaurant of other foodie faves, including The Dutch and Locanda Verde - takes the traditional American breakfast and gives it a high-end French twist. Eggs and hash browns become fresh farm eggs with pommes de rôtisserie and benedicts get served on brioche, or perhaps with a petite salade. Regardless of the pronunciation, the food here is beautifully refined and served up in a luxurious, window-walled bistro on the corner of Lafayette and Great Jones Street. Come here if you're feeling the itch to jump on a plane and escape to an elegant Parisian playground before the clock strikes noon.
