Sunday morning brunch is an absolute necessity in New York City. My friend Laine insisted we go to Grey Dog Café, because they were voted to have the best french fries in Manhattan. We were a little taken aback by the line, but Laine insisted it was worth the 30 minute wait. She was right.
The restaurant is very hip and you start by ordering at the counter. The hostess gives you a colorful handkerchief that corresponds to your table. I ordered a large café au lait to go with my Grey Dog Breakfast, which I ordered with scrambled eggs and chocolate chip pancakes. Laine and her friend ordered vegan options. Laine had the avocado toast, and her friend had a quinoa bowl.
The food took a minute to come out, because the restaurant was packed. We didn’t care because the cups of coffee and conversation kept flowing. We all enjoyed every bite of our meals and were fully prepared for the walking that was in our future.
