As its name implies, NY Bagels and Deli equips customers with all the stacked sandwiches and freshly baked bagels one would expect from a New York City deli. In the morning, cream cheese, lox, and eggs rest between bagel halves. In the afternoon, it's corned beef, baked ham, and salami. Even leafy salads, filled with grilled chicken and dried fruit, come with a choice of a bagel or bagel chips. Hot and cold coffee drinks, as well as more than a dozen smoothies, accompany dishes such as pizza and wings—two recent additions to the menu.
From daily empanada specials to tapas and oven-roasted entrees, Clos Bistro & Café incorporates international flavors to make breakfasts and dinners a global experience. Argentinean influences take the form of strong coffee that complements hearty breakfasts of smoked-salmon omelets and pastries, and evenings are fueled by daily pasta specials, verdant salads, and flank steaks fresh from the oven. Located downtown, the bistro's sleek storefront hides a cozy interior with a wall of mirrors that send light shining across tiled floors and provide ample opportunities to whisper compliments at your reflection.
When you sit outside at Café Bastille, it’s easy to imagine yourself instead at the famous Paris bistro Les Deux Magot on the Left Bank – even the chairs are the same. The perfect place to sit and savor some fun people watching, Bastille offers up the usual assortment of French bistro cuisine that is so common in the City of Love; flaky croissants, croque monsieurs, eggs benedict, crepe Suzette, crème brulee, soufflés and, of course, plenty of wine. The small interior’s walls might be the only thing that removes you from the reverie, as they’re lined with images and posters from Paris, the city that this café is modeled after, as opposed to the city that this café is in.
Everything seems to glisten at Freshko Gourmet, from the polished stone floors and shiny wood tables to the freshly iced desserts resting inside glass stands. To pair with these sweet treats, Freshko's baristas prepare hot and iced coffee and espresso drinks that give patrons a pleasant jolt, unlike licking a battery. Other offerings include salads, crepes, and sandwiches, which customers can take to go or eat at one of the indoor or outdoor tables.
Sedici Cafe Grill channels Old World flavors from Italy into a menu of freshly baked pastries, gourmet paninis, pasta, and illy caffe coffee. Popular bergen paninis bury norwegian smoked salmon between slabs of crispy artisan ciabatta bread ($9.25), causing all the Norwegians to wonder where their smoked salmon went. Our Very Best quiche is a triumph of lorraine spinach, asparagus, roasted onions, sun-dried tomato, and other garden grub nestled in a bubbly base of feta and mozzarella ($6.25). Customers dunk warm-from-the-oven chocolate-truffle cookies ($1.25) in steaming café lattes ($3.75) and dunk their laptops in steaming pools of complimentary WiFi.
Bright colors and faux balconies decorate the interior of LaBoca Grill Cafe, recalling the vivid hues that residents of Buenos Aires often paint their homes. The eatery's menu recalls the flavors that might be found in the kitchens of those homes: grilled salmon with ginger-orange sauce, lobster ravioli, and breaded steak milanesa are a few specialties. Earlier in the day patrons can devour brunch classics such as lox platters, brioche French toast, and eggs Benedict with skirt steak.
