The Dutch NYC
Brunch is a religion.
One of my good friends from Greece took me to brunch here one time. We were brainstorming on a project when our stomachs started growling. I can’t think and process when I’m hungry, especially if my hunger was a bottomless pit. Plus spring in NYC is like winter biting your ass. Still. (Translation: Hunger is heightened.)
I always liked eating fried chicken, but fried chicken for brunch in NYC is highly unusual. Of course, NYC is the city of eggs for brunch. And that was the convincing I needed to shovel eggs into my hungry stomach. (I always make it a point that you get hungry a couple of hours later eating eggs.)
Sitting at the corner of Prince and Sullivan in SoHo, The Dutch was packed with tipsy ladies on their second glasses of mimosa. Even with a reservation, we had to wait for 40 more minutes just to get seated.
Their cup of latte didn’t disappoint. This was Stumptown Coffee Roasters, I believe. No Mimosas for me. I needed to stay sober.
Hot Fried Chicken, Honey Butter Biscuits and Slaw – $32
The Dutch’s Hot Fried Chicken didn’t disappoint. I loved their honey butter biscuits, given their wet look. The biscuits were generously slathered with sticky butter. It’s so good.
Poached Eggs, Tomato, Smoked Ham, Chipotle Hollandaise – $22
Obligatory eggs. What is brunch without mediocre eggs?
My tank is full and I can finally think ideas again.
