Michael’s (New York)

The age old saying that “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is definitely not without truth.

Many people tend to skip breakfast in the name of DIETING or LOSING WEIGHT. But you are so, so wrong. On her blog, nutrition consultant Olivia Lee, who publishes interesting nutrition related posts under the moniker, Nutritioneer states,

“Some adults and teens skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight. That is one of the most common errors in any weight-loss diet. Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult because people tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on less healthy snacks to stave-off hunger. Furthermore, some studies suggest that skipping meals is associated with greater odds of weight gain compared with those who regularly eat breakfast.”

Technicalities and scientific research aside, I love my breakfasts; Scrambled eggs, Poached eggs, or the occasional pancakes – you name it, I’ll have it. Coming back to the food – I thought, what better way to start off my New York posts with how each and every day should be started – Breakfast at Michael’s.

Unfortunately, I had forgotten to take a photograph of the really awesome complimentary sour dough bread that started the breakfast. Two bottles of bread spreads accompanied them – Orange Marmalade and Strawberry Reserve. I like both of them for tasting really natural and rather than being doused in plenty of sugar, sugar was probably only used to accent the natural sweetness of the preserve.

But the bread and the jams were really just sidekicks to what I came here for. A perennial breakfast favourite of mine – the Eggs Benedict (US$23.00).

To say that I had no complaints for the Michael’s rendition of the classic dish is a severe understatement. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the bacon that lay beneath the eggs were not dry. A drizzle of well-balanced hollandaise sauce completed the dish.

Other accompaniments to the dish include, Fried Potatoes, Roasted Tomatoes (Trust me, these were really sweet), and a medley of fresh fruits.

The bacon was a suggestion from the wait staff that was simply amazing! Indulgent yes but definitely one to save those calories for!
