Where: The Vine, NYC
What: The perennial brunch question: Pancakes, or eggs and bacon? The obvious answer, especially when a hangover is staring you down is simply yes. At The Vine from Laurent Tourondel, the Maple Sausage & Cheddar Pancakes are meaty and savory on their own, but then layered with crisp bacon, fried eggs, and hollandaise: let’s call it a Benedict-meets-lumberjack, or let’s just call it delicious.
Wash it down with: A Blood Orange Mimosa, by the glass or by the pitcher.
