Now we are home I thought I’d write a few posts on some New York practicalities. Feel free to comment if agree or disagree with what I say.
The first post in the series is eating out breakfast. Unlike in the UK many people eat breakfast out in USA and on previous visits we’ve been known to eat out most mornings. This trip it was a mixture of eating out, eating in the apartment and eating on the go.
Our apartment had toast and coffee making facilities so some mornings that is how we would start the day, especially as Eleanor and Terry discovered cinnamon swirl bread.
We occasionally just grabbed a pastry and coffee from a street cart – breakfast on the run.
Sylvia’s, Lennox Avenue, Harlem – We had breakfast here a couple of times. On our first full day in New York we went for Gospel Brunch. It was very busy but we got a table in the back room. The food was good but we never got to see any gospel singers, we heard them though! The Gospel Brunch attracts bus loads of tourists. Our second visit was on our last day in New York. A lot quieter still great food and even better atmosphere. Matthew got taught how to eat fried chicken from a Southern lady.
Make My Cake – on Easter Sunday we grabbed a quick bite to eat not cakes though they did look good. Instead of cake we had croissant and cinnamon bun. Great food and excellent service.
