New York City: Brunch at The Dutch

For those that know me you know that breakfast, or best known on the weekends as brunch, is my favourite meal in the day!  And with such a short trip, we only had time for brunch on Saturday.  This time, the recommendation came through a number of friends with connections in NYC.  And after looking at the menu, I knew we had to dine here.  Located in SOHO, The Dutch is a quaint bistro and bar with old wooden floors and banquettes, painted brick walls and twinkling lights – very vintage.  We ordered two pastry boards to start featuring their baked goods of the day: currant scone, pumpkin spice donut and an almond cake – fantastic to share and completely worth the extra calories.  Now I’m a sucker for eggs, whenever I can get scrambled eggs, I will – and I know, such a simple dish why get it at restaurants?  This time around, I decided to go all out and since we were in the States I figure why not go for the fried chicken and biscuits!  I never get fried chicken in Toronto because the only way to get it is to go to KFC or Popeye’s – so enough said, I splurged!  And for $19, I got a plate full of fried chicken – four pieces in total: leg, thigh, wing and breast; and two honey biscuits….I was so stuffed! I’d definitely come back again!
