In anticipation of the summer, Brunch Chick decided it was time to try a new brunch roof deck spot. So me and my posse headed over to Upstairs at The Kimberly. Usually, I am not much of an "uptown girl" but for the sake of brunchers everywhere I endured the thirty minute ride uptown on the 6 train.
The exterior of the hotel is nothing impressive, if anything a bit worn and stodgy. Upstairs the atmosphere is "boutique hotel - chic"; reminiscent of Hotel Rivington, Mondrian Hotel and The Andaz.
Most of the clientele are young, glossy hipster types with a few hotel guests sprinkled into the mix.
For a Sunday afternoon the restaurant was quite empty. With only a handful of tables and an open bar, we were promptly seated and given MENUS.
|Scottish Smoked Salmon Egg Benedict|
|Truffled Duck Egg Toast|
Justine ordered the Truffled Duck Egg Toast with duck prosciutto and gruyere cheese and was pleased with the taste and size of the dish. And although she actually got a hot plate, she agreed the product was not worth the price at $24.00.
|Ham and Cheese Croissant|
Connie had the best order with the Ham and Cheese Croissant with a sunny side up egg. The dish was simple and well executed; a classic French entree done well.
