Breakfast options were excellent. Dinner was good too. It was relaxing to eat close to the Lucerne and not get back in cabs after a long day.

Hard to find a good restaurant (as opposed to bakery or coffee shop) brekkies in NYC that is under $50. I had scrambled eggs on smoked salmon and it was excellent. Service was great and, blessedly, the staff were friendly.

Had breakfast before heading off to tour the city. The eggs were lukewarm and runny; the toast was hard; the butter was hard; the potatoes were awful. Breakfast was $24 before gratuity AFTER discount. Go elsewhere.
