Brunch of the Week (1 of 2) (9/14/13)

Our popular newsletter, One & One, is distributed once weekly, and highlights two of the best brunch spots we recommend for that weekend. Here’s a recap of this week’s One & One.

One American – 44 & X 

Hells Kitchen –  622 10th Avenue (corner of 44th Street)
Brunch Hours: 11:30am – 3pm Sat. & Sun.

 The Place: 44 & X has always been a gem. It’s one of the reasons we started BrunchCritic. People had to know about it. This must-go spot in Hell’s Kitchen is consistently delicious. It’s very bright and clean, while maintaining an unpretentious and laid-back atmosphere. The staff is always on their game, and it’s fun to read the quirky sayings on their t-shirts.

What to eat:
The pancakes, obviously. We love that the plate comes with breakfast sausage and fresh fruit too. It’s sometimes so annoying to have to order those things as sides at other places. Really though, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, like the crab cake or classic bendicts. While these standard brunch items can be found elsewhere and often average, 44 & X prepares their food with quality and care. They know what they are doing.

What to Drink:
Get the bloody Mary. We love that it is garnished properly, and served with celery and a skewer of three olives.

Reservation Policy:
Reservations are accepted for parties of two or more.

Happy Brunching! :)
