In New York, brunch is a must for week-ends. Everybody meets over eggs and orders bloody marys or mimosas to celebrate the week-end. My favorite dish is eggs benedict with crispy bacon on the side, I wait the whole week for those poached eggs and the buttery hollandese sauce… (ok I just lied there sometimes i eat it during the week as well…)

So when my friends proposed Westville for brunch on Saturday, I off course checked their menus and was happy to have my favorite dish.

There is one thing I hate in New York though, it is either you have a reservation or not, they don’t let you sit at your table if everyone is not present. Even if say that we will order for the missing person. So on Saturday we were a group of six and as the sixth person was stuck in the traffic, so we had to wait standing for 40 minutes while they gave our tables to other people. Finally when we sat down, everybody was really hungry.

My friends who knew the place ordered some market dishes for the middle; artichokes with parmesan, beets with ricotta, brussel sprouts and polenta. After that we all ordered our dishes, I had my eggs benedict with a side of crispy bacon… and it was delicious!!! The others took sunny side up’s and scramble eggs with different sides. and as we were scared to not be full enough, we ordered french fries for the middle.

I can simply say each dish was more delicious than the other one. We were all happy, the only thing missing was bloody mary’s… I believe they don’t have the liquor license…
so a tip for you bring your own booze, and discretely pour it on your tomato juice ;)

The service is great, all the staff is adorable with you; they make you feel home and comfy. Now I understand why my friends are there every week-end for brunch, I might join them!!!
And I highly advise everyone to go… just be sure that you are all on time, so your waiting time for a table is less….
