New York Trip - May Trip Day 2, 2013

La Bonbonaire – 28 8th Ave, New York, NY 10014

If you are looking for a typical west village breakfast place; classy décor and designer clad clientele than don’t come here. Come here for efficient service, really great food and a bit of old New York.  It is what tourists want when they come to NY and although a regular visitor I will never tire of an old fashioned diner. I ordered pancakes and unlike many of the other places I have been in NY, they weren’t too fluffy which can make them tast dry, they also were packed full of blueberries. Not the biggest portion I have ever had, but that for me is a plus as I hate wasting food (I still left 1 of the stack).  This place is a now a rarity in an area that is so smart places can feel soulless.

Drawn this restaurant because of some rave reviews and in one article it was described as the most underrated restaurant in NY.  Unlike some reviews I had no issue with the front of house, in fact it was all very casual and friendly.  There were four of us and we all went for the 5 course menu having a cocktail to start. We had mixed reviews of the food, portion sizes were fine( I’d read people complaining about this, I think this is an American thing)  in fact way too big for me, I actually left a scallop, I’ve never done this  before. The food was accomplished but not surprising or wow for me.  The prices for the food are pretty reasonable but once you add all the extras definitely a splurge meal.
