New York: tasty bites and buzz at the classy The Standard Grill
Nowadays, most avid travelers have explored New York in one way or another and are bound to have their brunch favourites. And although getting to stay at a room at the hip Standard highline may not come often, you can surely try their breakfast or brunch at The Standard Grill.
The grill can often times be packed with all sorts of celebrities (we even Christine Lagard when we were last there) so make sure you plan accordingly. Their hip location within the Standard Highline hotel but also in the revamped area of Meatpacking calls in for all the cool kids from artists and designers to food aficionados and the likes.
Comprised of three main rooms, two in the front and a more private and dimmed-lit one at the back, The Standard Grill serves an American breakfast with just what you'd expect. Killer pancakes with maple syrup and powdered sugar, a mouthwatering bacon cheese morning sandwich as well more upscale delicacies such as oysters, salmon and high end cheese.
Their service is efficient enough although a bit shaky with the odd waiter dashing through the rooms to catch up on random requests. The ambience though makes totally up for it, especially on the sunny days (this is New York, remember?) when the sunrays come in the front rooms and make for a remarkable spring setting!
