B Reviewed: Nice Matin

Nice Matin
201 West 79th St., New York, NY


The hunt for the best brunch spot in NYC is still on...Pre-basketball "Keep It Simple" revelations (see previous post), we made a stop at Nice Matin on the Upper West Side. Just steps from the famous Sarabeth's - known for it's ALWAYS perfect brunch, and 45 minute wait times, Nice Matin is visually appetizing, and promises a French Mediterranean fare that should be able to hold it's own. So did it?


The outdoor dining experience was superb! Rather than throwing bows with neighbors on the left and right, the tables were well-spaced, and the awning providing just the right amount to shade without taking over the sun rays. As for the food - the preparation was truly French with rich flavors shining through. Most importantly, the options were completely authentic to the region and spiced with fresh herbs (think: lamb sausage scrambled eggs, and orange buttermilk french toast). Plus, the coffee was on point! Definitely check it out the next time you want to get away with a simply prepared, but elegant brunch that pays homage to the French Riviera.
