A cool place to have brunch. The seating arrangement was great. Can't beat those couches for comfort. I highly reccomend the Spanish Omelette, made to order. The eggs florentine I could have done without. I don't know why people think it's a good idea to put benedict and florentine on a bagel instead of the traditional english muffin.

Re: “Le Bouchon

We had a reservation for 9:00 and had to wait an hour to be seated. Needless to say this is deffinitely not a place I would go back to on a Friday night. The food was descent but often over sauced. I recommend the French Onion Soup and Creme Brulee.

Beautiful gardens, A lovely place to sit and have a long meal without the pretentious wait staff that is found so often in fine dining in the city. The lobster Bisque is a must.

Re: “Khyber Pass

This is one of my absolute favorites I visit Khyber Pass about twice a week. A delicious lunch and dinner buffet good for those who are not familiar with Indian cuisine to sample. Naan and tandoori chicken made fresh and brought to your table. Delicious Samosas, Chicken Curry and Aloo Gobi. I have never been disapointed. The Indian music tends to get a little tedious after a while but it is a small price to pay for the culinary delights that Khyber Pass turns out.

Re: “Phoenix

Dim Sum is a fun way to eat brunch. Most of the food was delicious, but I would stay away from the chicken feet. The majority of the waitstaff does not speak much english so you may end up with a dish or two that is very strange. My party ended up with two bowls of chicken feet due to the communication barrier, but we felt that was all part of the fun.
I personally have not had much experience eating Dim Sum but there were several people in my party who did and they said this experience was one of the best.
