Weekends in New York are all about Brunch. And while there are many restaurants that add 3 bucks to their omelette, offer bloody marys, and call it brunch, there are just as many places doing some brilliant food! We ate at August in the West Village on Saturday and I was pretty pleased with my hot smoked salmon and potato hash with poached eggs. It’s a flavor combination I’ve had before but this version was light and delicious and served with some awesome french bread. Plus they had some great coffee!
But the best part of the meal was the outcome. Because like all of the great food I’ve had while dining out, the desire to get back into my own kitchen immediately followed. So for Sunday Brunch, it was all about pancakes! And these from scratch, whole wheat apple cinnamon pancakes were just awesome. Light and fluffy, packed with flavor and smothered in maple syrup, Em and I were pretty pleased with our work! With some crispy oven baked bacon (my new favorite way to cook it) and some OJ, the only thing missing was a bloody mary. Oh well, there’s always next time!
