With numerous accolades to it’s name, this place needs no description, but I would like for it to be on my blog. The food at Sarabeth’s (Central Park) definitely stands as testament to the magic of founder, Sarabeth Levine – even for vegetarians! This is a great place to stop by for lunch or brunch to make any day in nyc, a good day in nyc. Sarabeth’s is the the physical manifestation of the American dream. With a humble beginning of selling orange marmalade, Levine now has a bakery, numerous restaurants and a flourishing Jam business (source:http://www.sarabeth.com/About-Us_ep_7.html). More food for us!
The menu has a number of vegetarian options, that will definitely leave you more than satisfied. If you are up to it, sip on a delicious cocktail with your meal, I have heard they are amazing! The food tastes as good as it sounds- the tomato soup is truly velvety! We ordered the adult grilled cheese, 2 portions of the avocado toast – one just did not cut it, the beets and burrata salad, and a bunch of breakfast beverages. I must say that the hot chocolate was a disappointment, it’s more chocolate milk than a hot choc. But all the food was absolutely delicious!
After much debate – pancakes vs. waffles – we ended our meal with the Toasted Coconut Waffle, and I am glad we did. The waffles were perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside, soft, light and fluffy on the inside! Just the thought of them makes me salivate. Layer the waffles with the perfectly balanced vanilla – rum butter and each bite is perfection.
Make reservation before you go to Sarabeths, tables don’t come easy, and for good reason!
