Last Saturday, I finally had the pleasure of dining at Sarabeth’s Central Park South, one of those iconic classic New York restaurants famous for its brunches. I ordered the Four Flowers Juice which was a mixture of orange, pineapple, banana and pomegranate. It was very good: Fresh, full, fruit flavor as well as wonderfully sweet.
As for my meal, I had a hard time deciding but finally picked the Farmer’s Omelette, filled with leeks, ham (substituted with chicken sausage), chunks of potato and gruyere cheese. The omelette was delicious- Cooked to perfection and all the flavors came together so that I could especially taste the gruyere cheese with potato and sausage. It also came with my choice of muffin, scone or toast and I decided to get the pumpkin muffin. I didn’t even get a chance to taste my muffin until later because I was so full from the omelette. The muffin was speckled with sunflower seeds on top and I enjoyed the strong, sweet taste of pumpkin.
The person that I was dining with ordered Fat & Fluffy French Toast with strawberries, which he graciously shared. The French toast was simply divine: Huge, thick slices of sweet caramelized breading with powdered sugar, syrup and sugared strawberries. The French toast truly was fat and fluffy, as well as slightly crispy on the outside and perfectly fluffy inside.
We also ordered a side of chicken sausage with apple compote. I really enjoyed the apple flavor, so much that I had some of the apple compote by itself. It was a delightful meal at Sarabeth’s with great service. I would definitely come back.
After eating, we started walking around the park and came across the Central Park ice skating rink so we decided to spend the afternoon skating. It took a minute to get used to being on ice, but after that I felt comfortable skating at a medium pace around the rink.
When we had enough of ice skating, we continued to stroll around the park, coming across the man who makes huge bubbles and black men dancing.
We then stopped by FAO Schwarz toy store and had fun playing with the large variety of stuffed animals everywhere.
All in all, a wonderfully spent Saturday!
