BRUNCH AT NORMA'S

It's pretty much a tradition now, when New York City Restaurant Week is here, we have lunch at Norma's at Le Parker Meridien. Otherwise very pricey place, Restaurant Week allows us to have 3-course lunch for just $24. Above potato pancakes with cranberry apple sauce and sweet carrot payasam. Very crunchy and good this time.
Keli had the lox bagel with caviar. There was tons of lox, she couldn't even finish the entire thing. For entree, against my will, I had egg white frittata with spinach and tomato. The other options were steak and fish, both which I don't eat. I'm not a fan of eggs and don't really eat them anymore.
Best part of the meal was dessert; Chocolate decadence French Toast. We both had it because last time I wasn't too impressed with the chestnut pancakes. Way too thick for my taste.

  1. Looks delicious! Nice tradition you have :) I find it difficult to dine out here in Spain as it is very difficult to find a restaurant that serves good vegetarian food, especially outside the big cities.

  2. Yes, I can imagine small towns have their long traditions with "meaty" meals. Luckily Northeast Us is very progressive with vegetarian options and the worldwide movement "Meatless Mondays" has been adapted to many restaurants here, for example ALL celebrity chef Mario Batali's restaurants do it.

    But then there are some that offer NOTHING for vegetarians like my old favorite BLT Market (gorgeous restaurant) that doesn't even have salad without meat. Very disappointing.
