Cookshop

If you haven’t yet been to the Highline, you should go at least once. The view is spectacular, and there are a huge number of restaurants to choose from. If you’ve decided you’ll do brunch at the Highline, start with Cookshop. This is a supremely popular brunch in NYC, so do your best to plan ahead.

For such a busy place, the staff is anxious to take care of the customer and make sure they’re well-treated. This is a super bonus in NYC, seeing as we have our game faces on constantly. As far as the food goes, Cookshop serves burrata, a deviled egg tasting, buttermilk biscuits, huevos rancheros, and french toast with roasted apples.

The downsides to Cookshop would most likely be the high price of food, mainly because of their location and it’s NYC, so why not. Don’t expect a cheap brunch experience at Cookshop. Also, the food in comparison to some other more innovative places, might not measure up.

An idea to visit Cookshop is August. Why? Well, this is the season for heirloom tomatoes. In fact, the location is known for the seasonal flavours that the place throws at you. What makes it an excellent choice for your brunch is it has the fish cured right at the spot, the poultry is normally raised locally and the red meat is fed on the grass. The look and appearance add up to the interest created by the food. The sidewalk seating and the high windows should provide you just the right kind of ambience that you have been looking for. And yes, we forgot about the menu. The Jersey strawberries and house-made almond butter is a great option to start with and then you can move ahead with frittata studded with zucchini, spring onions, basil, and goat cheese.
