Balthazar Brunch

Are your parents in town or are you being taken out to a brunch date? Balthazar in SoHo is worth a visit, if not only for the killer quiche, which sells out daily, and the delicious pastries. We found the restaurant a little dated and overpriced, but it’s definitely a cool Manhattan experience worth trying at least once. Read our full brunch review of Balthazar here. 80 Spring St New York, NY
