NYC’s Only ALL Brunch Resource

Week of 09/16 ONE+ONE ARCHIve

44 & X

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.

Artisanal Fromagerie & Bistro (Closed till May)

THE PLACE

Artisanal feels like a cross between old New York and a Paris Bistro. This large space has high ceilings, white tablecloths, and hints of French flare... and lots of cheese. Brunchers bustle in each weekend, dining on beignets and massive meat and cheese plates.

What to Eat

Artisanal's take on Crepes Suzette, filled with bananas and chocolate sauce. The dish is rich, decadent, and irresistible. And since they are a fromagerie, you really can't go wrong with the fondue served with freshly baked country bread. The prices are a bit above average and we miss their $25 prix fixe. But Artisanal is still an experience to be had.

What to Drink

The sparkling wine pairs best with your crepes. Or, go all out with the "Sparkling Brunch for Two," at $110 which includes a bottle of Methode Champenoise sparkling wine, one entree, and one dessert.

Reservation Policy

Reservations are accepted for parties of two or more. Tip: There are some large round tables for groups of 8 that are perfect for a nice birthday celebration.
