the clocktower - french toast

After more than 16 years of living in New York City, I now consider myself to be somewhat of a brunch connoiseur. But over the years, I’ve noticed a lot of my favorite haunts become increasingly crowded. Waiting over an hour for a table and bumping elbows with the stranger next to me are both surefire bellini buzzkills! Enter my new go-to spot… The Clocktower!

Located in the EDITION Hotel inside of the iconic Met Life building, The Clocktower is composed of three intimate dining rooms, a billiards room and a beautiful dark woodpaneled bar. I feel so chic and sophisticated whenever I go there. Hands-down my favorite menu item, the brioche French toast has a delicious carmelized sugar coating reminiscent of creme brulee and is served with two mouth-watering slices of smoked bacon!

If you’re ever in Manhattan looking for an upscale brunch spot, this is the place to be!
